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 beautiful community. They areas around the country club are stunning. Great for taking a walk or a drive around town. Very peaceful, although traffic is picking up as of late. Primarily because of all the apartments on the outskirts of town. New restaurants are coming in and the country club is top notch. People are friendly and it's really easy to meet folks. Moving here, you can jump right into. Main gripe would be taxes. Absolutely out of control. Have fought and won an increase on one occasion. $600k house have have $20k taxes. That's worse than CT.
