SEATTLE RANKS THIRD IN NATION ON VITALITY INDEX

Creative Cities
Creative Cities International, a New York-based innovative urban development company, released its Vitality Index rankings for the top U.S. cities. Seattle stands strong at number 3, preceded by New York and Chicago and followed by San Francisco and Boston. The variables are based on factors ranging from economic development to what city-dwellers deem exciting in their hometown. The creative, cultural and economic strengths a city flaunts are key aspects in the assessment, as well as the more nebulous variable that considers the “energy” of a place. The index hopes to encourage policy-makers to focus on choices that enrich the lives of residents.
