Central New Jersey is a great area for active adults looking to retire near Staten Island.

It’s not uncommon for adults who live in Staten Island to move to New Jersey when it comes time to retire. They choose to relocate to a less urban area that’s still close enough to their family and friends, and Central New Jersey is a good area for this. You can generally reach Staten Island in under an hour without heavy traffic. Middlesex and Monmouth County are popular for Staten Island transplants, and each has over 30 active adult neighborhoods.

For this list, we have compiled four mid-sized to large 55+ neighborhoods that offer a wide variety of homes for sale as well as on-site amenities like swimming pools and exercise facilities. Also, they’re close to I-95, Route 9, and the Garden State Parkway, which all lead to Staten Island (SI).

This area also isn’t far from New Brunswick, which is home to some of the state’s top university hospitals like Robert Wood Johnson and St. Peter’s. See if any of these sought-after communities are right for you.
