New York senior living

New York City is the largest city in the United States and one of the biggest in the world. It is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world with people from virtually every nationality. Famous for its fashion, financial, media, and real estate businesses and home to many Fortune 500 company headquarters, New York City is full of young, ambitious professionals. This is great for a senior who wants access to the absolute best of everything from clubs, restaurants, retail stores, housing, and every other aspect of life.

There are so many restaurants in New York City that you could visit one every day for the rest of your life and still not be able to eat at them all. With Central Park located in the borough of Manhattan, you can stroll through green areas while looking at all the impressive skyscrapers.

Home to many universities, clubs, and seminars, it's almost impossible not to take a class or attend a lecture of some sorts. With many museums and art venues, the cultural enthusiast can enjoy virtually any type of activity they may ever desire.

Many consider New York City to be among the best retirement cities in the U.S. Here are some other reasons to choose living in New York City.

Social Opportunities: studies have shown that a good group of friends is more important to a happy retirement than money or health. New York City offers many opportunities with civic groups and hobby clubs to generate a solid core group of friends. These friends can help ward off the problems of aging like dementia and health issues.

Public Transportation: rural living isn't good for seniors who can't drive since they require someone's help to get around. The expenses of transportation add up quickly for fixed-income seniors so the public transportation of New York City is quite beneficial. Even better is that most public transit systems have senior rates that are much cheaper than normal.

Access to Medical Services: it's pretty obvious that if you live near a hospital, you're more likely to survive a medical emergency. Despite how your mind feels, the body starts to break down and there's a good chance you'll need a hospital visit during your retirement years. Living in New York City is great since there are more specialists and medical services available and at cheaper rates.

Access to Local Businesses: city living offers walking distance to most businesses that you'll ever use in your retirement years. Even if you need to travel, there are a lot more shopping centers and discount stores in urban areas.

Fitness: exercise is critical to keeping healthy during your retirement years. Cities have every type of fitness facility from standard fitness centers to niche fitness places like indoor rock climbing walls so there's something for everyone. Even if you want to exercise on your own, there's tons of parks or indoor malls to enjoy walking in.

Continuing Education: today’s seniors know the importance of exercising their brains, as well as their bodies. Urban living provides access to a wide range of classes, through local universities, museums, city recreation departments, etc. Enrolling in these types of courses can help stave off the depression that some people feel once they stop working full time.

Food and Entertainment: retirement should be full of activities you never had a chance to enjoy while working. Dinners out to fancy restaurants or weekend getaways to a nearby city or historical site are all possible living in a city. Usually, cities have tons of entertainment venues like theaters and museums and there's always something going on.

Retirement Housing Options: In New York City there are unique housing options which include condos, apartments for rent, hi-rises, retirement communities, lofts, co-ops, luxury condominiums, top end townhouses and other housing for over 55 boomers and senior.
