As retirees in NY, you might consider some of the retirement communities. The Catskill mountain area looks pretty attractive when you visit. And still an easy drive to NYC.

In New Jersey there are retirement communities around Jamesburg and near Englishtown. Easy access to the NJ turnpike or trains to NYC. Easy access to the NJ shore. Easy access to Philadelphia.


THx for the specific tips, Paul. Since I don't know how long DD/SIL/GC will live in Manhattan, I don't intend to buy property there yet. If they (and my son in Eastern MA) stay put, we'll look into retirement communities in our late 60s/early 70s. Till then, probably rent a condo, possibly in a 55+ community. I have a preference for a place near the train, so I can visit the kids/grandkid easily even if I/we become too incompetent to drive to the city. (DD lives in Harlem now, so at least there's fairly easy free parking.) I was kinda hoping they'd move to a drier climate (or "dire," as I just typed!), which would be better for my health, but like Mick Jagger sez, you can't always get what you want. And we do like the beach and the sea, even though we don't like high humidity. And I love NYC--I grew up just outside it, so it feels like home to me.
