For safety, it's best to check out the beighborhood yourself. Or start with the areas around your parents' favorite place to eat and their doctors' offices. Also, a doorman can add an additional feeling of safety for your parents, and a doorman can put your mind at ease, too. Knowing that there is someone in the building at all times, might help you and your parents feel safe and comfortable.
If you would like to take a look at some places, let me know. I'm happy to help you and your parents find the perfect place.
Have a great day!
I am in the same exact situation actually. My father just had open heart surgery and I need to relocate them to Chinatown since he can't get around as well anymore. The difficulty I've run into is that the co-ops have very strict rules. What have you found? Would you recommend anyone to work with or any buildings that are a good target? thanks!
If you are looking to move them to Nassau County, do check my offer.
More info plus pictures about the condo - apt 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom with a 24hr security and 24hr concierge built in 2006 can be found here:
At the moment a physician from Korea is renting my apt. Previously, a couple from Korea rented the apt and now they are finishing their studies in Harvard.
The area surrounding the apt, The Horizon is bustling, exciting and extremely safe. There are many shopping malls around the area and a big park, Eisenhower Park is just a few minutes drive from the apt. Let me know if you have further questions. Hopefully I am able to assist you in any way I can.
In the meantime, you can email me at email@example.com
Good luck with finding a suitable apt for your parents:)
I know a new construction right in Chinatown with decent 1BD under $600,000. I speak Mandarin Chinese, English and Taiwanese. Originally from Taiwan, I have represented a lot of buyers from Asia to find properties in Manhattan. It is easier to find an agent who can speak your parent's language. I am happy to help.

Any REBNY agent should be able to show you anything available in the area with in the price point that you are looking for. Key is finding an agent who will be looking out for your parents best interest first, and stick with them. Agents will also work harder and be more dedicated if they know that you are loyal to them. If you are needing folks who are fluent in the language of your parents, we have a number of agents on staff, as well as a number of attorneys that we work with that are quite good that could accommodate very easily.

You are a good son to be helping your elderly parents. There are many options. Your choice of Chinatown is very logical, keeping your parents in proximity to their doctors and other familiar things. The most important thing to understand is that you should work with an agent as your buyer's agent. When you look at listings and go to the listing agent, they work for the seller and their job is to get the most money for the seller. When you work with a skilled, experienced agent as your buyer's agent, we streamline your search based upon your needs, negotiate on your behalf, and take you through all the steps of buying right up to the closing table. The fact that it is a cash transaction will make it quicker and easier, though there are still several steps where you will need a pro to take your through, particularly if we end up with co-op vs. condo.
