New Census Data: 110,000 D.C. Residents Live Below Poverty Line


Earlier this week, nation’s capital was crowned the sixth-best city in the United States to live in by Bloomberg BusinessWeek. The magazine had this to say about D.C.:

There are great bars, endless restaurants for hobnobbing, and some of the best museums on the planet.

The city is much in demand, however, with fine schools and the lowest foreclosure rate on our list.
