Active Adult Communities in New York Offering Condos

Active adults looking for picturesque condo living should consider these communities in New York.

If you’ve made the decision to move into a condo, your next step is to find the best location to suit your needs. Many active adults decide to settle in the counties close to New York City because they want to be close—but not too close—to all the Big Apple has to offer.

There are many other reasons to choose New York real estate, though. Here are two important ones: retirement-friendly taxes and some of the best medical care in the country. At 4 percent, New York state sales tax is relatively low when compared to other states, and there’s no tax on civil service pensions, military pensions, local pensions, or NY state pensions. There’s also no tax on social security; and for adults ages 59 and older, qualified pensions up to $20,000 may also be excluded.

As for hospitals, New York Presbyterian, Mount Sinai, and NYU Langone are all top-performing, with some of the nation’s finest physicians and most cutting-edge technologies. When it comes time to relax, the shores of Long Island, the serene Catskill Mountains, and parks like Harriman and Bear Mountain provide ample opportunities for hiking, boating, swimming, camping, and other worthy pursuits.

We’ve picked four stellar active adult communities that have the right ingredients for condo living in New York. Read on to learn all about them.
