According to the authors of the book “Cities Ranked and Rated,” Modesto is the worst city in the U.S. By Sarah Ostman

Head over to Highway 99, drive about 20 miles south and take a look around. According to the authors of the book “Cities Ranked and Rated,” you’ll be looking at the worst city in the U.S.

That’s right: Rock bottom on a list of 375 metropolitan areas — and beating out the previous 2004 edition’s bottom pick of Laredo, Texas — is none other than Modesto.

The city ranked 316th out of 331 communities in the 2004 edition.

Authors Bert Sperling and Peter Sander judged cities on their “livability,” using more than 70 criteria, such as cost of living, education attainment, recreation and availability of public transportation.

The high cost of living, high unemployment rate and a lack of things to do added up to give Modesto its poor ranking, the authors said.

But what really hurt the city’s rating this time around, Sperling said, were skyrocketing housing prices, foreclosures and commute times.

“Due to high housing prices, people have been driven out of cities, and a two-hour commute is no longer an anomaly,” Sperling said. “In places like Modesto and other places in the Central Valley, there are a lot of speculators that moved in because of housing prices.”

Modesto recently ranked third in a nationwide study of the highest foreclosure rates, he pointed out.

Topping the list of “livable” cities was the surprise pick of Gainesville, Fla. That city’s strong arts presence, pleasant climate and small-town southern feel gave it an edge, the authors said.

Close behind were Bellingham, Wash., and Portland, Ore.

According to the list, Stockton can’t claim any bragging rights. It ranked close to the bottom, coming in 350th.

They forgot to add Merced in the mix. THAT place is the shithole. I grew up there and still have family that lives there. I have to disinfect myself everytime I leave there..$400,000 stucco shitboxes all over the place. How in the hell do you buy one of those picking tomatos?
