The Tree City made an impact this year and is listed as the best place to live in the nation, according to an opinion column in The New York Times.
Euless beat out the competition when examining criteria such as the cost of living, jobs, racial diversity, and climate. The study examined 16,847 towns and cities across more than 30 metrics.
Farhad Manjoo’s piece “Everyone’s Moving to Texas. Here’s Why.” included a top 10 with other North Texas cities like Edgecliff Village, Garland, Grand Prairie, DeSoto, Mesquite, and Cedar Hill.
“If you’re looking for an affordable, economically vibrant city that is less likely to be damaged by climate change than many other American cities, our data shows why Texas is a new land of plenty,” Manjoo wrote.
Euless has about 58,000 people with large numbers of Tongan and Nepalese residents. It has highly rated schools, good restaurants, clean air, and racial and political diversity. Manjoo claims the area offers it all “at a steep discount compared to the cost of living in America’s coastal metropolises.”
The writer’s top 10 list is as follows:
- Woodlawn, Ohio
- Edgecliff Village
- Grand Prairie
- Cedar Hill
- Brooklyn Center, Minn.
- Forest Park, Ohio
