Chris Churchill reports in the Times Union that Portfolio magazine ranks Albany, NY as 18th in the U.S. for a high quality of life. Who’s in front? Raleigh, Washington, DC, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Bridgeport-Stamford… The last? Bakersfield, CA. The rankings were based on data such as commute times, jobless rates, and income levels of the 67 largest metropolitan areas.

One caveat: Portfolio also ranked Albany as “more fun than Las Vegas.” Hmmm…
