New York All Active Retirement Communities and HomesSave This Search
New York is the country's third most populous state and is home to the largest city in the US, New York City. It is bordered by Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Pennsylvania, and shares an international border with the Canadian provinces of Quebec and Ontario.
Apart from the hustle and bustle of New York City, the natural beauty, cultural activities, and several international airports are among the things that draw retirees to the state. The weather can be intimidating to some, with low temperatures and large amounts of snow in the winter. However, if you can get past the winter months, the summers are warm and sunny.
The Hamptons, one of the state's retirement havens, can offer retirees more than just a fancy address. There are quaint towns with beautiful beaches, little shops and local art galleries, and artist communities that have been home to famous painters such as Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko.
