BROKEN ARROW, OK – The City of Broken Arrow is on the 2010 list of the "Best Places to Live," according to Money Magazine.

Broken Arrow came in at number 81 on the list.

"We are thrilled about this recognition," says Broken Arrow Mayor Mike Lester. "We know what a wonderful community we live in and it's nice to see the nation taking notice."
