    Malden named best place in state to raise a family

    MALDEN, Mass. -- A national magazine recently honored the city of Malden.
    Business Week magazine named the city of six-miles north of Boston as the best place in the state to raise a family. The magazine cites school performance, safety, amenities, and affordability as the criteria used in their selection of the town.

    Business Week also notes that the town is racially diverse and has a business district that is on the upswing. Many people across the state, even residents of the city were surprised by the honor, but they could see why the city was recognized.

    "Easy access to Boston, close community, it's a very small city," said Rob DiMarco, a Malden resident. "We like the neighborhood, it's very safe," said Devaji Nasankar, of Malden. Weymouth and Cambridge were named runners up in the category.

    I'm always in Malden, and I really can't comprehend how anyone could come to this magazine's conclusion. It truly proves that you can't believe everything you read. Did they actually go to Malden when they concluded this, or simply pump some numerical values & statistics into an algorithm, and say "hey, Malden's great!".

    I know, I used to live in Leominster. Leominster is kinda Malden Central. I liked Leominster. But if anyone voted Leominster best place to raise a family I think my drink would come out my nose.

    I lived for 5 years in Malden , my son was born there (malden/melrose hospital) .....There's nothing special in malden , it s like Revere , Winthrop by the sea or Medford ,but safer and cleaner than a place like Brockton or Lynn.
