DETROIT (WXYZ) - Thursday, Forbes Magazine named Detroit the 'Most Miserable City' of 2013.
The magazines says they looked at nine factors for the 200 largest metro areas in the US; "violent crime, unemployment, foreclosures, taxes (income and property) and home prices."
"We also include less weighty, but still important quality-of-life issues like commute times and weather," said staff writer Kurt Badenhausen.
To add insult to injury, two more Michigan cities fall in the top ten; Flint ranks at number two and Warren at number seven.
