New York

Home to both the largest city and biggest state park in the country, New York provides residents with urban playgrounds and impressive natural amenities. While New York City garners much of the tourism attention, the rest of the state offers highly livable communities. The best places to live in New York include Albany, Syracuse and White Plains. Residents enjoy a wealth of entertainment options from Broadway shows to pro sports teams like the New York Yankees and the Buffalo Bills.
