New Albany is the Best City to Live in Ohio according to 24/7 Wall St. in its 2020 annual list of Best Cities to Live in Every State. According to the report, more than one-quarter of the 31.4 million Americans that moved last year cited lower crime, shorter commutes, better job markets and more affordable housing for their decisions. “New Albany is one of the fastest growing cities in Ohio. In the past five years, the number of people living in the city grew by over a third.”

“Located less than 20 miles northeast of Columbus, New Albany residents are within commuting distance to jobs in and around the state capital — and many of those jobs are high paying,” the report notes. The median household income in New Albany is $203,194 a year, more than triple the median nationwide of $60,293. Not only are New Albany residents likely to have high incomes, but a dollar also goes further in the city than it does in much of the country. Goods and services are 13.4% less expensive in the city than they are nationwide, on average.”
