Top 97 Opportunity Cities For 2014

I'm excited to shine a new light on this group of cities. Many of these places have been cast as dinosaurs slowly decaying, on their way to extinction, but they still have much to offer to the right people. Other places are doing pretty well, but often don't receive the attention they deserve.

The idea of "Opportunity Cities" hit me as I was visiting some of the places on this list. These cities have been battling serious issues like crime and unemployment, often for decades. With a tenuous economic situation, there has been a shortage of tax revenue for city services like education, water, parks, museums, health care, fire and police departments.
