Congrats to our friends in Rome New York. They were just voted the number 3 best city to live in in New York State.

1) Crime Rate

2) Commute Time

3) Income

4) Education

5) Restaurants Per Capita

Here's what they reported on for Rome:

3) ROME 

- Odds of Being a Victim of a Violent Crime: 1 in 736

- Commute Time: 17.5 minutes

- Income: $44,220

- Residents Who Attended Some College, No Degree: 21%

Rome is hidden away in the upstate region, just north of Utica and east of Syracuse. The nearby presence of the Adirondack Mountains and the many lakes, rivers and hills make Rome an outdoor lover's dream - but that's not the only reason people choose to live here. The city features academically competitive schools, affordable homes, a short average commute and one of the lowest violent crime rates in the state."

Pretty cool right? So who got number one? The city of Kingston.
