..."Quinn says they have no regrets about skipping the cooler East Coast cities for the Midwest. “I’ve never seen so much pride in a city. It’s kind of jarring, initially,” he says.


It’s not just the Short North neighborhood that makes Columbus a city of opportunity. A major factor is its very low cost of home ownership (the median sales price in the first quarter was $99,900). Amenities like Ohio State, a major university in the heart of downtown, a thriving arts and cultural scene, and a top-tier hospital make it a city where people can build a career as well as a rewarding life. Columbus lands the No. 1 spot on our inaugural list of Opportunity Cities, which we developed in collaboration withModerator cut: link removed, linking to competitor sites is not allowed


...Our No. 1 city, Columbus, is home to a surprising number of major corporations whose employees represent a deep pool of potential customers for the Quinns, including billionaire Leslie Wexner’s collection of fashion brands (his L Brands–formerly The Limited–includes Victoria’s Secret and Bath & Body Works; Abercrombie & Fitch, a former Wexner brand, is also local), a 20,000-person JPMorgan Chase outpost, and the headquarters of Nationwide Insurance, Huntington Bank, as well as an outpost forAlliance Data Systems. It also has a healthy pipeline of venture funding for entrepreneurs, thanks to NCT Ventures as well as Drive Capital, a firm run by two former Silicon Valley VCs."

I've known so many people over the years that have asked me for recommendations on where they should move (I guess this comes with being a nomad), and they always say Chicago, DC, Atlanta, San Francisco, ect. My response is always "those cities are great and have plenty to offer, but have you ever considered Columbus, Ohio?". They usually give me a strange look. Oh well, more for us!

The 614 is awesome and I love seeing it get good pub.
