Miami most miserable cities, WPB ranked 4th

MIAMI (WFLX) -  It may be considered by some to be a playground from the rich and famous, but it is also considered to be the most miserable city in the country!

According to a survey by Forbes Magazine, Miami was ranked to be the most miserable city in the country.

To come up with the list, Forbes used a number of factors, including crime, unemployment rates, foreclosures, taxes, as well as commute times, weather and performance of local sports teams.

West Palm Beach ranked fourth on the list:

"South Florida has long been stained by corruption. One of the latest examples: Jose Rodriguez, the mayor of Boynton Beach (part of the West Palm metropolitan division) was suspended from his office last month by Gov. Rick Scott after he was arrested for allegedly using his position to obstruct a child abuse probe involving his wife's estranged daughter. Home prices in the West Palm area are off 50% since 2006."

Gary, Indiana comes in at the bottom of their list.
