The publication’s latest annual ranking of America’s top 50 small towns is out. Topping the 2013 list is Sharon, MA. Population: 17,944; median home price: $375,000.
It’s a three-and-a-half-hour road commute to NYC from Sharon, making the top small place a little impractical for Manhattan day jobbers. However, for those toiling in Boston and Providence, it’s a perfect hop, skip and real-estate-inventory jump.
