Would I really want to retire to a community where half the population is living below the poverty level? I don't think so.

This suggests an economically divided community where some are very well off financially and a large perentage is made up of low income seniors, the unemployed, and others on public assistance or just living out of their cars.

Noted one community listed home prices of $162,000. How to you get a mortgage for that on $28,000 income? Also noted State College, PA on the list. Want to compete for apartments on low income against thousands of college students?

I'd like to read the whole article but something doesn't seem right here.
