Within a 50 mile radius, there are 4 nuclear power plants nearby (as the crow flies). Closest plants to me are 30 miles by car, 20 as the crow flies. How about your city?

And apparently, it's the only one in the world not located on a body of water.

For commercial power reactors, there is one or more in southern AZ I think. For private reactors, there are two in the city of Albuquerque, used for scientific research, at Sandia National Laboratories, and several more about 50 miles north at Los Alamos National Laboratories.

But I feel like power plants are largely ignored on here, despite their controversial nature. I'm pretty neutral when it comes to them--just wanted to see how many people live near one, since the three reactors in Lower Alloways Creek Township, NJ are visible throughout much of New Castle County and Kent County Delaware.

Fun fact: Philadelphia is the city/metro that has the most nuclear reactors in close proximity, with there being eight reactors within 75 miles (3 at Lower Alloways NJ, 2 at Peach Bottom PA, 2 at Limerick PA, and 1 at Oyster Creek NJ).
