Detroit Top’s The List As Most Miserable City In The United States

Am I the only one that doesn’t agree with this? Detroit was named the most miserable city in the United States. FORBES magazine cited Detroit’s violent crimes, high unemployment, dwindling population and financial problems. I guess they’ve never been here?

It beat out Miami, which held the title last year,  my hometown of Flint, Michigan, Rockford and Chicago in Illinois and Modesto, California. Detroit’s has been on a four decade decline with the worst crime rates in the country and unemployment at 11.3 percent.

Wondering how they came up with this? Forbes looked at 200 of the country’s largest urban areas and ranked them on factors including crime rates, foreclosures, taxes, home prices, commute times, weather and decreasing populations. So are you proud to be #1?
