Retirement Communities on Long Island for Over 55

This is your guide to the many types of retirement communities on Long Island for over age 55 to meet every need.  There are apartments on Long Island for seniors, affordable 55+ housing, condos, co-ops, single homes, manufactured homes, master-planned communities and more.

Separate Pages:

Many residents on Long Island quit snow shoveling and lawn mowing and sell their long-time home to find an over 55 community on Long Island.  They can use their equity to buy a new home and still have some money left over for retirement savings. This scenario has gone on for a long time and isn't likely to change.  

Some retirees move to warmer states but also consider Long Island.  Long Island has outstanding amenities for retirees in its great 55+ communities, parks, water recreationlibraries, natural surroundings, and train service to the city.
