… Ithaca, if you believe a San Francisco-based company that specializes in cognitive training exercises.
The Central New York city was named the smartest in the United States by Luminosity, which compiled a ranking of more than 400 cities based on how residents performed on their training games.
Upstate New York faired pretty well in the rankings, with the Albany region coming in 80th, followed by Binghamton at 81, Ogdensburg/Massena at 84, Rochester at 89 and Oneonta at 91.
Many of the top cities are college towns, including Ithaca, which houses Cornell University and Ithaca College. State College, Penn., home to Pennsylvania State University, was second, with the home cities of the University of Michigan, Purdue University and Iowa State University all finishing in the top 10.
