Grand Rapids Praised By The New York Times

Grand Rapids has received a lot of national attention over the last couple of years. Of course, we’re Beer City, USA, our residents starred in a lip dub video that went viral, Forbes Magazine named Grand Rapids the #1 city to raise a family, and now, The New York Times is praising Grand Rapids for its focus on food!

In an article published on Tuesday, Times reporter Keith Schneider told the story of Grand Rapids, as well as the new Downtown Market that is already being built. He praised our ability to attract, and keep, young professionals to the area and also touched on our unemployment rate (which is below both the state and national average).

Today, Grand Rapids is full of young professionals in good careers, who enjoy a low cost of living, first-rate restaurants with locally brewed beer and a variety of residential options near work.

You can check out all of the other wonderful things that the New York Times had to say about Grand Rapids on their website.
