The GOOD Cities Project

We create the cities we love, and the cities we love create us.

There’s a lot to be said for being your own boss. The freelance lifestyle affords certain freedoms, comforts, and rewards that 40 cubicle-bound hours a week simply cannot. The ever-increasing independent workforce is a testament to a deeper cultural shift, one that values work-life balance above all else. However, there are still some practical matters to consider, like where should you call home, when you’re looking to work from home? In this infographic, we investigate the best U.S. cities for freelancers. 

Tweet and instagram us at #goodcitiesproject to share how you balance the work in your life. 


The GOOD Cities Project is a five-month collaboration with Ford, exploring how we make our cities and how our cities make us. As part of the project, GOOD and Ford have commissioned cultural creatives across the country to help illuminate and celebrate the rich and vastly diverse points of view that make up each city's individual character. Each week, we will be exploring attributes that we believe are fundamental to living meaningful urban lives.
