Default THROWDOWN: Pendleton, IN vs. New Albany, OH

Which is better in terms of skyline, culture, downtown, suburbs, people/friendliness, cuisine, and most of all - tourism?

I know it's tough to compare two great cities like these, but surely most of you have visited one or both of these cities at some point... no opinions???

I'm surprised nobody is talking about the hip-hop scene in either city...

New Albany is a very wealthy suburb of Columbus that is growing quite quickly with housing developments made up of mostly Georgian brick houses. As far as new suburbs go, it's not too bad as there are sidewalks, walking trails and not too many strip malls. New Albany is the world headquarters for Abercrombie & Fitch and mostly has 3 or 4 story office park buildings, so not much of a skyline. I'm not familiar with Pendleton, IN.

I don't know which of those is better, but both are better than Houston or Atlanta...That's for sure.

It appears that New Albany is just a rich Jewish suburb of Columbus.. am I missing something? $120,000 family income.
