Talking Says something about NH when "There were two murders here" is the reason for redlining a town

Like all such lists, it's mostly bogus; and likely exists as click bait. All these lists use arbitrary criteria to filter out the majority of towns, in this case, a cutoff point of 5,000 residents eliminates ~80% of the state.

Including "Manchester" on a list of Best/Worst places in NH is a cop out -- pretending all of Manchester has a uniform crime rate is like pretending all of New Hampshire is homogeneous. There are good neighborhoods, and bad ones.

Probably because they have high income and low unemployment.

"Before you freak out and tell us these places might not be so bad, you should know that the data doesn’t lie."

Here we go again.
Another "survey" where the person never actually set foot in New Hampshire.

Yes, data doesn't (usually) lie. But where does the data come from? Who submits the data?

Note:
A major US city had it's crime rate drop. The police chief was honored.
Except, it later came out that this new police chief changed what data and statistics that was released.
Nothing changed in the city except what data and statistics were released.
"Crime dropped" because some crime statistics were never released.

So the folks constantly issuing terms such as "Best" and "Worst" can be meaningless.

I am shocked to see Belmont on this list. It is quiet here and people are friendly. This writer is completely clueless.

Driving 30 minutes for a decent meal in CONCORD? lol Please. There are several mom and pops places in Belmont where I can get a decent meal. I already commute to the capital so driving is not an issue.


Ugh. Just NO.

Default Only in NH would you call a place with 8,500 residents a "city"

Many NH towns have 0-1 places to go out for dinner. They were too lazy to research that, but did rank based on population density, lower being worse.

I agree, knocking a town because you have to drive a half hour to get to a restaurant in Concord is bogus; if you're going to judge places based on geography and the highway department, you'd end up writing off the entire northern quarter of the state.

Might as well just rank towns by how far you have to drive to get to the UPS/Fedex depot and call that "scientific".
