We have a very age diverse neighborhood. 9 houses on the street with adults in the range of 30 to 94. So, by definition, we have an age-friendly neighborhood. We all get along well for the rare times we interact.

It is a quiet town, low crime. It has access to a supermarket and Walmart. Not to far from nearby mall and restaurants and hospitals. One thing it needs is a public transit system to help people get around.

extremely, it's mostly full of retired people. it's slow and not loud. I'm the youngest person in the neighborhood but that's okay, I'm disabled so a lot of these accomodations help me too
