Albany, the capital city of New York, has plenty to offer its residents. The population of the city itself sits just under 100,000, although the entire metro area encapsulates about 500,000 people. The median home price, at under $200,000, is lower than the state’s average. The vast majority of residents have at least a high school education, and over a third have a college degree. Albany is a great place to live for history buffs and winter-lovers, as well as foodies and those who enjoy nature. There are heritage areas, fresh markets, music venues, beautiful architecture, an annual Tulip Festival, places to go ice skating, and so much more. Furthermore, there is a lot of nature upstate, including places to walk through forests and near rivers. Yet another benefit is that schools tend to be good in Albany, and it is a great place for families.
