Down East Magazine Names Bangor Among Best Places To Live in Maine in 2015

Townsquare Media Bangor

Down East Magazine has named Bangor among the best places to live in Maine in 2015.

The magazine selected eight communities — Camden, Norway, Bangor, South Bristol, Kennebunk, Yarmouth, Portland and Hallowell — for its list this year.

The feature appeared in the magazine’s March issue. Here’s what Brian Kevin, Down East Associate Editor, said about the city’s recent state.

Bangor’s no metropolis — which I appreciate. The gateway to the North Woods should feel rootsy. But you can’t hang around there these days and notice a kind of a creeping optimism, a sense that it’s a city on the up.

In 2014, Hampden was one of six Maine communities selected for the list, based on statistical data and anecdotal evidence gathered from site visits and interviews with residents.
