Business Week magazine just put out their list of the Best Places to Raise Your Kids 2009. The magazine was looking for the best affordable cities to raise kids. They picked one city in each state and were looking for cities with a population of at least 50,000 and median household incomes of between $40,000 to $100,000. The very short article on Malden, MA cited the city’s racial diversity and easy commute as some of the reasons why it was picked.
Ready for the kicker. . . Cambridge was one of the runners up, so if Malden cannot fulfill its duties during the year, Cambridge can step in and take over the crown :)
