nyc has endless things to do to occupy a retirees time.

who ever put the criteria together for this survey was pathetic.
Plus NYC is integrated into the best, most developed portion of the rail network. For that matter, many of its burbs as well as other BOSWASH conurbations have similar advantages.

Sorta agree in that they are useful in giving Forum participants something to chew on which much of our activity in here is. Which on turn is great publicity for the publication/author as in this thread title

Often the ensuing discussion is more interesting/informative/valuable than the original list, in my opinion.

The thing is we are all different and looking for different things. Its the reason why we don't have one brand of anything and houses all alike. Same in retirement a golf wants a places he can golf all year; skier wants a place with snow and mountains and a light tackle fisherman that love the coast wants to be near salt water shallows territory with fish habitat that produces fish. Most compromise for work most of there life and want more choice in retirement. Most know what they want;its just finding it at their price to enjoy life more. Some just want a place they can afford a reasonable life with nothing special..

Most of these articles aren't all that helpful. An MSN Money article recently
ranked states for retirees based on the states' unemployment levels, and job
opportunities for seniors. Go figure.
I was taking a look at the articles as well to get the different lies of the land in the US of A. If you ask me, sometimes I think they're really run for businesses deciding where and what to set up shop with...;-)...I mean in a way they have 'free' research right there on their publics and how the economics look in areas. Why waste time setting up shop in a place where nobody has any disposable income to spend? No use in spending thousands on research when you get it right there.
