City Receives High Marks in Education, Cost of Living and Economic Growth

SAN FRANCISCO — NerdWallet, a consumer advocacy and financial literacy website, has compiled a list of the best cities in New York for young families. 

NerdWallet has ranked Saratoga Springs at the top after assessing the city’s public school system, cost of living and economic growth. 

Homebuyers in Saratoga Springs are likely to see their houses grow in value as the city’s population has seen a significant increase in recent years. The quality of the city’s public education system also makes living in Saratoga Springs a good education investment as well as a good financial investment. 

“For children, this is an idyllic setting and one where they’ll be raised right: GreatSchools rated the city’s schools a 9 out of 10,” said Mike Anderson, Analyst for NerdWallet. 

A cost of living calculator reveals that New York cities are more affordable than many would initially assume, especially for those young families who may not have accrued much savings. Several towns on Long Island as well as Tonawonda and Ithaca also ranked high on NerdWallet’s list.
