According to Business Week, Boston is one of the top 5 safest cities to ride out a recession.

Boston, which came in fifth on our list, doesn’t have as much protection as Houston or Washington. But it is surrounded by major universities such as Harvard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Tufts. It’s also a medical hub, with some of the best hospitals in the country. But it also has a substantial number of employees working at mutual funds and banks, which will continue to get hit in the financial crisis.
