I just think it's a little of both. Friendly or somewhat friendly

Very high taxes

Naperville's cost of living is high. Although their health care (hospitals, etc.) is excellent, property taxes are not affordable for someone living on a fixed income. It does have some employment available for those over 65 who want to supplement their fixed income; however, the jobs are very limited.
