En de stad waar je woont/blijft hangen
Explanation:
(literally: de stad waar je bleef hangen) kan klein, saai en vervelend zijn.

A lot depends on the sentence preceding this one.
It could also mean if in following context: 'it may well be that the town you're stuck in...': 'het is goed mogelijk dat de stad waar je terechtkomt, klein, saai en vervelend zal blijken te zijn'.
It's, therefore, quite important you give as much context as possible.
