A nouveau-riche, contrived suburb northeast of Columbus, Ohio. Contrary to popular opinion, kids here are not preppy, but rather "skater-ish," tacky, and trashy. The real east-side Columbus preps (read: not Bexley Jews) live in rural Gahanna, near Rocky Fork Country Club, with large, private homes with lots of land. They don't send their children to public schools like New Albany, but rather to Columbus's premier private school, The Columbus Academy. They prefer to spend their time at Rocky Fork Country Club or Columbus Country Club, not the ostentatious, faux-Anglo New Albany Country Club.
John: Kids in New Albany are so rich!
Carruthers: Proof that money can't buy class!
