    Pa. Town On 'Best Towns' List Does Not Exist
    Wexford, Pa., Named 28th Best Town, Is Not A Town

    WEXFORD, Pa. -- The folks who live in Money magazine's 28th best town in the United States don't have to worry about lots of folks moving in and ruining things for them.

    That's because the "town" in question -- Wexford -- doesn't exist.

    Wexford is a post office designation for parts of Pine, Franklin Park, McCandless and Marshall -- four communities in Pittsburgh's North Hills suburbs. As such, Wexford doesn't have borders, a mayor -- nor does any entity known as Wexford collect taxes. Maybe that's why it made Money's list.

    Seriously though, Money rated the Wexford area the 28 best place to live in the nation based on the above-average incomes of those who live there, increasing real estate values and rising population.
