New Orleans' purported "child-friendliness," in a new study of the best American cities for young families 


Young families, look away from New Orleans: That was the zmessage from a new study by the apartment-rental website Apartment List, which ranked the Crescent City a miserable 461 out of 474 American cities when it came to raising children.

  New Orleans barely escaped being on the 10 Worst Cities for American Families, a list that included Atlanta, Detroit and Flint, Michigan. Criteria included safety, housing costs, school quality and "child-friendliness," which included U.S. Census data about the number of minors in each city.

  The best cities for young families? Four out of the Top 10 were suburbs of Dallas, while two were just outside Indianapolis.
