Y'all are acting like Sherman is a horrible place. it's not. Yeah it's not like Dallas or McKinney, but there is still heart to living here. Not everyone here are "rednecks" and not EVERY COP will give you a ticket for going 4 miles over the speed limit! Our cops are amazing so stop bashing them and the wonderful people of this town! It's really annoying that y'all gave time in y'alls day to bash cops and a town. Like grow up. We have tons or restaurants that have great food: Tracks, La Masa, Cellermans, Catrinas, etc. we have things for kids to do: movies, shop, and we are getting a new arcade store. ... more

I can't wait to get back to Chicago. I was born and raise in Puerto Rico, move to New York when I was 18. Have lived on and off in Orange County, Broward County and Miami-Dade, love the nudist beach but I had also lived in Chicago and even though had bad experiences, the good ones outweigh the bad ones. I'm planning on moving the beginning of 2018. Wish me good luck and good health! ... more

I am from the Bronx and moved here 23 years ago. I call Putnam Valley, N.Y., my home. I have lake rights to Lake Oscawana and it is really beautiful! We spent much of summer on the lake and it can't get much better than that.
The people are friendly and welcoming. I am very satisfied with our choice in living here. I definitely recommend it to everyone!

Hi Faith - If you are looking for senior/elderly income based apartment complexes, go to the HUD web site. You can also google the keywords, senior subsidized housing, affordable housing, or section 8 for the city of your choice. Good luck! ... more

This can be achievable. For example have a lovely NEW CONSTRUCTION home in Southern Pines, NC exactly like what you asked about. We have meticulously designed the home in consultation with a professional ecologist and environmental control engineering company. This property is not a marsh as most folks are familiar with. It doesn't smell like most people think either. You can hand plant, hand trim, even put a picket fence in, etc. Restriction basically is: No mechanical machines to disturb the soil. It will be an incredibly private with view off the back deck of the woods, deer, birds, blueberries and raspberries, huge ferns and so much more, etc. We are going to landscape with indigenous native plants. It's going to be great.

Irvington is a dirty ghetto just like Newark, East Orange, and Paterson that's why it's so cheap to live there. You get what you pay for. If you want a nicer suburban area Union, Maplewood, South Orange & West Orange is much cleaner, quieter. ... more

There will always be crime wherever you are, but I am born and raised in St. Louis so if you are looking for where there is hardly any, you will want to look at zip codes 63021, 63011, 63017, 63038. West saint louis county is where you'll want to be: Wildwood, Chesterfield, Eureka, Ellisville, Ballwin, Manchester, Des Peres, Creve Coeur. Kirk wood is okay, but you have really bad parts there so I'd avoid it if you don't know the area. If you don't like the suburbs and want to be near the city look into Lafayette Square, I am not sure the zip code. It's right next to downtown saint louis. Clayton and Brentwood are good areas as well! Good luck, sorry I don't have more zip codes for you. ... more

Kathy Burgreen answered:
Being retired in a very expensive location, we're OK for now but I do have a list of places we can move to if our situation ever changes. Here is how I did mine. I created an Excel worksheet on my computer (paper and pen is fine too) and I listed the following categories which I believe are VERY important for retirees:

Taxes - how do income taxes compare in different locations and compare it to where you live now.
Property taxes & sales taxes - compare different places to where you live now.
Cost of Living - there are many websites that compare cost of living from where you live now to anyplace in the U.S. Remember the further away from the city center, cost of living may be cheaper or more expensive. It depends on location.
Health care - Go to Medicare's website and there is a map that tells you how states rank with medical care. Also use other websites to compare health services.
Senior care services - research nursing homes, assisted living, senior transportation, etc.
Activities - any nearby colleges? museums? theaters? parks? entertainment?
What do you see yourself doing all day? Pick a place that will allow you to be active all day.

Hope the above helps.
