Top 10 City Scandals of 2013

As we bid farewell to 2013, here are the Top 10 scandals that cast a negative light on some global cities this past year.

"When it comes to scandal, no city on Earth is untouched. If things look good now, just take a peek back in time," writes Mary Jander.

"That's how we approached our end-of-year review of the top city scandals of 2013. Yes, these cities need to take stock of the local disasters that put them in world headlines this year. But we outside observers need to take a lesson from each, as well."

On the list of the Top 10 scandals includes the resignation of Tokyo's governor, Ankara & Istanbul's rejection of green space, Kolkata's cycling ban, and more.
