I was expecting Washington state somewhere on top, really Chicago?

Not metro! Mt towns of Colorado are the best by far!

"best" meaning overpriced, over-hyped "hoods" that appeal primarily to pearly white gentrifying yuppie mofos who drain their elders' trust funds or go into massive amounts of debt in order to make due so little Sunshine or Drake or Madison can attend overpriced, over-hyped private schools (because even in these "best" hoods, the local public schools are filled with those "icky" dark-skinned folk and neither do they serve gluten-free faux organic fare)

Nothing guarantees that. However, this article is talking about "best area to raise your kids" not how proper they will be as adults.

Bradford Ashington

on the flip side, even raising your kids "properly" doesn't guarantee they will lead "proper" lives into adulthood

Doesn't matter if it's the greatest place on Earth...if you don't raise your kids properly, then what does it matter?

I would never raise kids here. Why? So they can be jock-clones?!! Denver kids are so narrow I have never been able to believe it.

LoDo (Lower Downtown) was named by a columnist Dick Kreck at the Denver Post ! RiNo is (River North) Named by Developer Mickey Zeppelin!! Im not sure about Ballpark, but I think it was a Historian who wanted to make it a Historic District so Developers wouldn't tear it down. I sold a Building in Ballpark and the Front and Back were deemed Historic!! So FYI They were not re-branded by Real Estate Agents!!

Speer is the neighborhood south of Capitol Hill but north of Wash Park West. It's a very real neighborhood, just check out an official city of Denver neighborhood map. The crap comes from real estate agents who rebrand neighborhoods with stupid sounding names like LoDo and RiNo and Ballpark that replace perfectly good names like Union Station and Five Points.

I, too, never heard of the Speer neighborhood and I have been here 69 years. if it runs along Speer Blvd, it is as varied as dogs at the pound. Varies from near slums to multi-million dollar homes.

These numbers make no sense and neither does the Denver neighborhood: "Speer" - has no cultural significance, nor is it an actual borough.

I didn't realize "Speer" was a neighborhood !?

An apartment for a family in Cow Hollow for $1300? Maybe In 1962, today 4 -5 grand might do it.

The entire time I lived in the "Speer" neighborhood, I never knew it was even called the "Speer" neighborhood.

Michael Roberts of Worstword, don't you get tired of doing these shitty Top 10 pieces, or 10 Best? Where is the creativity? Anybody can look at some list somebody else makes, then write about it. Not too original, but hey, what do I know?

Interesting study considering the public schools for that area have some the worst ratings and complaints from parents regarding gang activity in the school.
