I think it´s a figure of speech, as if the city has been tore up.
A city with debris after taking a beating from a hurricane.

So, in the song I think it means a city in decline. As Lorde talks about her adress, chances are that she is talking about her neighbourhood (in the music, of course). Hence, a neighbourhood of underprivileged people, with will kept streets, deteriorated schools, shabby rundown buildings, no or almost no employment etc.
Certainly, that´s why Lorde "is not proud of her/his adress"
