My wife & I are in our mid 60-s, live near NYC and are retiring in six months and thinking about moving up to Baldwinsville area to be near our 10 month old twin grand-daughters in Syracuse. Since we would be leaving an active "Senior" social life behind, can anyone suggest a community in the area with some population of over 55 Adults?

I believe that there is a place in Baldwinsville called McHarrie something(can't remember the full name). It's off of Downer Street near the old Tri County Mall.

Raddison, a planned community that is adjacent to Baldwinsville (and typically perceived as an extension of B'ville by many people), will have some options for you. Keep in mind that, in relative terms, our population is small and the density low. You'll also find fewer highly affluent seniors here than you would in the NYC Metro area. Therefore the social programs and networking opportunities you're accustomed to may be less abundant here.

That said - any palce that has cluster homes or a mix of freestanding, cluster homes and upscale condos, will also have a fair percentage of educated and moderately affluent seniors. On the east side of the city just into the town of Dewitt these include the Hamlet and Pointe East. Mallard's Landing in Manlius might be worth exploring. I think there are a few similar choices out past the western edge of the city in the twon of Onondaga but I don't know the names of them.

Within the Radisson planned community is Silverwood at Radisson, a market rate rental complex for seniors over the age of 55. Here is their website:

Longley Jones Management Corp. - Apartments - Senior Housing - Syracuse & Surrounding Areas - Silverwood at Radisson

Also in Baldwinsville is Timber Banks, a luxury planned community on a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course. The community is in its early stages of development and will consist of apartments, work-live units, townhouses, patio homes, and luxury single family homes. Moderate to upper income seniors are part of the development's target market.

Here is their website:
Longley Jones Management Corp. - Apartments - Senior Housing - Syracuse & Surrounding Areas - Silverwood at Radisson


Erie Village is another community popular with seniors although there are no age restrictions. Erie Village is located in the town of Manlius (East Syracuse address), approximately 25 minutes south east of Baldwinsville in Syracuse's eastern suburbs. Shopping including big box retail, a grocery store, and a YMCA with an olympic sized swimming pool is less than 1 mile away in Fayetteville.

Erie Village Homeowners Association


Hope this helps.

I'm not sure if this planned community in the Baldwinsville area has any senior based housing, but Village Green might work too. There are condos as well as single family homes in that area and they have Foxfire Golf Course there as well.

Are you looking for senior *housing,* Bruce? Or are you just looking for a nice area with a good number of seniors and a fairly active community of them?

Thank you all for your quick and informative response. We actually visited Timber Banks last week while visiting the grand-children. We were interested in "the Villas" they are building and we will be up there again when the Model is open May 8th. The big sticking point is this: as a "guy" I am not worried about adjusting. If i meet one or two fellows to play golf with occasionally I will be happy with walking, reading and movie-watching, my other main interests. My wife on the other hand is really concerned about meeting other women and having a "active" social life. Since we will be newly retired when we move, I understand her fear of how to fill the days during the week while the grand-kids are in day care. I have told her anywhere we move she faces the same uncertainty. Obviously, a development with a good amount of Seniors offers a better chance of meeting people with like interests.
As far as senior "housing", no "Proulxfamily", we are looking for the active community.
