Boston Is A Youth Magnet Says The Wall Street Journal

The Wall Street Journal, in a much quoted article by Sue Shellenbarger, recently reported on six experts’ views on which “cities will emerge as the hottest, hippest destinations for highly mobile, educated workers in their 20s when  the U.S. economy gets moving again.”

Happily Boston made the list.  We’re number 11. There were a couple of ties.  Humph. 

Boston’s been a destination city for young people for years so it’s no surprise we’re on the list.  Personally, I think we should have ranked better but there are some great destinations among the winners – Washington DC and Seattle are tied for first, and New York, Austin, and Chicago all made the cut.  Those cities would be my top picks too though any list I created would definitely include San Francisco, absent from the “experts'” picks.

So, if you want to see who got the seal of approval from the WSJ’s panel of “demographers, economists, geographers and authors on urban issues” check out the article.
