November 01, 2016

Saratoga Springs is the best small city to live in New York, according to a study from financial advice site WalletHub.

The study, which examined cities with populations between 25,000 to 100,000, ranked Saratoga No. 11 out of 1,268 cities nationally. The ranking was calculated by looking at the affordability, economic health, education and health, safety and quality of life in each city.

Saratoga Spring’s high quality of life ranking — No. 26 overall — landed it above Saratoga, California, and below Southlake, Texas. It was held back by a low affordability ranking — No. 832 overall.

The No. 1 city on the list was Westfield, Indiana, and No. 1,268 was Greenville, Minnesota.
