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 friendly, safe, and energetic community. The infrastructure is well maintained and the parks are pristine. Everything is within walking distance which is a huge plus for people young and old who are looking to get a little exercise here and there. The schools are great, though taxes are high. It is a very affluent community and isn't as diverse as Gahanna or Westerville.
New Albany is a wonderful place to live. Over the past 15 years it has blossomed into a beautiful community. When the weather is nice there are always people out enjoying it...lots of wonderful families...I am very happy to call this place my home!
