Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

There's been a lot of talk about high rents in Denver of late.

So we recently shared a list of the ten metro-area neighborhoods with the cheapest rent for a one-bedroom apartment.

Many of the areas on the roster are in outlying parts of Denver, and few can be described as trendy. As such, some readers weren't thrilled at the prospect of living there.

This response doesn't express much sympathy for the point of view.

Lol, you complain that the rent is too high but then won't live somewhere that isn't the greatest. There is an epidemic of whiners in this state.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
