When you drive through New Albany you will quickly notice how different it looks from other cities. All of the buildings and houses are made of brick. It didn't take me long to realize that I was in the wealthy part of town. There are plenty of things to do like shop, exercise, and eat. There are great restaurants here and one of my favorites is Mellow Mushroom. I would recommend visiting New Albany because it is an experience you won't want to miss out on!

I am twenty-two and have lived in New Albany my whole life. I love it! I have gone off to stay for a few months other places, but nothing ever has felt as safe, homey, and friendly as New Albany. There is a strong sense of community and a huge emphasis on great academics. It is a small Midwest community outside the city limits of Columbus providing a great network of jobs, things to do, and people to interact with from all stretches since Columbus is a hub of a lot over international individuals.
New Albany is a good suburb, with a catch. If you have money, are white, and have a family, New Albany is for you. It’s on the preppy side, which is ok if that floats your boat. There are many positives though. Great schools. Good sense of community. Great place to raise a family. Tons of things to do. Beautiful housing and plenty of jobs. Depends on your preference but this is probably the only east-side suburb that is actually “nice”. Would recommend if you fit the description above.
