I am usually grey and black,

but with a tint of orange

My inhabitants despise me,

but my city loves me.

What am I?

I know that there are two possible answers for this, so I will give a hint as to which one it is:

My cedslurbanm morf si pnosir

and my name is close to siphon

Is this

Prison?

I am usually grey and black,

The walls of the prison

but with a tint of orange

The prisoners’ jumpsuits

My inhabitants despise me,

Prisoners don’t like prison

but my city loves me.

But the city likes to be safe and house criminals there

Hints:

My cedslurbanm morf si pnosir = “My unscrambled form is prison” and my name is close to siphon = similar spelling I guess to prison.
