California cities love lists and use them to bolster claims about being great places to live, work & play. One new list, “Best Places to Live 2017” produced by MONEY in partnership with Realtor.com, ranks Monterey Park, Calif. #3 in “Top 100 Best Places to Live in America” based on a healthy economy, affordable homes, and a high quality of life. Another list (WalletHub citing Realtor.com) ranks Monterey Park a “Worst City in California” with few attractions, large % below poverty, lowest median family income and least affordable housing. If you are a fan of lists, don’t be surprised when one source is at odds with another!
