Miami rates as worst City to live in America

According to a new study, Miami, which has proven to be a tourist centre for holiday-goers, celebrities and more is the worst city to live in America.


Not even Detroit, long known for its high crime and poverty levels, is as bad as Florida's party hotspot, according to 24/7 Wall Street. The report concluded that Miami has one of the biggest income inequality gaps in the country.

The top 1 per cent earns $2 million. That is 45 times more than the average income of everyone else which is $31,917 a year, far below the national average of $53,657. Meanwhile properties are valued well above the national median of $181,200, at $245,000.

And more than one in four people live in poverty. Crime rates are also high, with 1,060 incidents per 100,000 people.
