Men’s Journal Names Las Vegas on “Best Places to Live” List

Las Vegas now has a spot in Men’s Journal’s “Best Places to Live 2010” list, but, sadly, there’s a pock mark on the distinction:  The honor is largely attributed to the foreclosure crisis that has cost thousands of people their homes. 

“Buy Someone Else’s Dream House,” the headline proclaims before giving a brief description of the city’s housing woes. 

 “The good news?” the magazine reads, “You can get a recently built house in a great area with mountain biking, climbing and a bit of nightlife nearby, for $100 per square foot.” 

It’s true, record foreclosures — Nevada led the nation in March and was high on the foreclosure list for many months — have created a small housing boom, as thousands are taking advantage of low prices and the soon-to-expire federal tax credit.
