The Midwest comes in with the most amount of cities in the list, with the South coming in second. The West Coast comes up empty with no cities ranked in the magazine’s list of affordable cities.
Forbes released its list of America’s most affordable cities, and it’s surprising what money will buy in some areas of the country.
New York City is the priciest place to reside in the United States, but Buffalo is the most affordable city in the nation.
Forbes made its selections based on three primary factors: housing affordability, as measured by the National Association of Home Builders; a cost of living index from Sperling’s Best Places; and Consumer Price Index (CPI) government data.
Based on those factors, Ohio ended up as the state with the most affordable large cities: Cincinnati (No. 3); Dayton (No. 4); Akron (No. 6); Toledo (No. 11); and Columbus (No. 20).

2. St. Louis Blues, 1929 RKO/Sack Amusements FREE Screening (one of several shorts), Feb. 26th, 7:30pm, Rock Hall - This sixteen-minute short film shot in Astoria, Queens, New York City, is blues singer Bessie Smith’s only screen role. In it, she plays a long-suffering wife of an uncaring gambler. Co-produced by W.C. Handy, author of the title song, the film also features Isabelle Washington (sister of actress Fredi Washington) who plays the “other woman.” Pianist James P. Johnson and the Hall Johnson Choir accompanied Smith and added to the overwhelming pathos of her singing, making this dramatized interpretation of the blues a true film classic.2 of 6
