Sounds like paradise. I've come to the conclusion that almost every city in my state hates pedestrians; and the one city of any size that did like pedestrians (San Francisco) has gotten so expensive that most can't afford to live there. I wish it were different.Seems like the best place for me to live is right where I am. As I've mentioned in other threads, I've owned this unit for 53.5 years and our housing expenses are about 37% lower than comparable garden apartments in the area. That fact has contributed to my financial freedom. We are in an area where the walk score is 98%. I can walk to restaurants, retail establishments, banks, the post office and even the supermarket.
There's access to public transportation that will take (me) or connect to just about anyplace I want to go, even the airport. But the only public transportation I've taken over the last couple of years is the Atlantic City casino buses (no I don't gamble...have a timeshare there) and the train to the Hoboken waterfront park on the Hudson River. Ubers and Lyfts are also readily available in my area and they come within a couple of minutes. I use them to go to my medical appointments when my son can't take me or pick me up.
