As you would expect of an NYC suburb, New Rochelle ranks in the top 5 for diversity on this list and in the top 10 for transportation affordability. The crime rate is also low here, ranking in the top 5 safest cities on our list. Which is great because New Rochelle also has a pretty decent Walk Score (66). Walk to the office anyone?
