The Best Small Cities in America

No surprise that Westfield, NJ, was one of the Best Small Cities in America! It was among the top 20 (#19) in both the overall rankings and safety rankings. This metric reported low levels of violent crime and property crime in the town. Westfield was also ranked among the top cities for “Economic Health.” The analysis compared 1,268 U.S. cities across five key metrics: affordability, economic health, education and health, quality of life and safety. In order to be selected for the study, cities had to have a population size between 25,000 and 100,000. Check out the list to see who else made it.
