B&C: Philadelphia is the nation’s fifth most miserable city

A post I wrote for the Temple News blog, Broad & Cecil: Philadelphia is the nation’s fifth most miserable city: 02.13.2008


A recent Forbes.com article has ranked Philadelphia as America’s fifth most miserable city.
The ranking looks at cities’ unemployment, tax rates, commute time, weather, crime, and toxic waste locations.
Philadelphia’s downfalls were commute times, violent crimes, and toxic waste locations. It ranked in the top 20 in each of those categories.
The rest of the top five most miserable cities: Detroit, Mich, Stockton, Calif., Flint, Mich. and New York, NY.
