WELCOME TO BABY BOOMER MEMOS
SHOULD AGING BABY BOOMER RETIREES MOVE TO BIG CITIES?
Retired Baby Boomers are searching for the 'perfect place' to live as we journey into old age.
Should boomers move to big cities? Yes, if we want an action-packed environment and appreciate countless entertainment and dining options.
A huge plus for boomers who do not own cars or drive is that nearly every food we crave and item we need is reached by walking or public transportation. Nearby stores provide (mostly) prompt front-door deliveries of groceries, medications, laundry, et cetera.
But ... are retirees able to afford city-life? A huge negative is the expense, especially housing costs. Homes in desirable neighborhoods are absurdly over-priced and unaffordable for retirees who rely on limited fixed incomes.
And ... are we willing to cope with crowded streets crammed full of nonstop traffic, phone-zombie pedestrians, and reckless bike riders, accompanied by constant noise?
Disturbing reality hits when older Baby Boomers notice we've slowed down a step-or-two. We are no longer nimble enough, speedy enough, or attentive enough to always keep up with the fast-pace of city living. Disturbing indeed!
