Thanks to AARP’s Twitter feed for alerting us to the Milken Institute’s report on the Best Cities for Successful Aging.
The criteria include how easy it is to get around (points here for NYC!), cost of living (don’t hold your breath), health resources, income opportunities, availability of enriching experiences, and respect (yo).
Here are the top 5 big cities for successful aging
- Provo-Orem, Utah
- Madison, WI
- Omaha-Council Bluffs, NE-IA
- Boston-Cambridge-Quincy, MA-NH
- New York Metro Area, NY-NJ-PA
Here’s a closer look at how New York got into the top 5 and were it could do better. No surprises…
Do you live in NY – and do you think it’s a good place to age? If you live elsewhere, how would you rate it? Share, people! Just scroll down to the comments below and be opinionated.
