“First, I love the neighborhood. And there isn’t crazy, loud car traffic. There’s a lot of community in the building—there’s mah-jongg and bridge nightly. And you could take the grandkids to Hook Park.”

“There’s a show-tunes group that performs once a month. There’s a politics group that brings in City Council candidates for Q&As. And if I wanted to start a baking group or a recipe exchange when I retire, I could.”

80 Metropolitan Avenue, Williamsburg
Jay Overbye, Halstead Property
“It’s one of those Williamsburg buildings that’s more relaxed and removed from the buzz of that area, but you still get that bohemian feel. It has a nice gym and a pool—exercise keeps you young.”

“There’s a driveway to the door, which is very important as you get older. Plus, there’s the health club, which has a breakfast bar where folks meet to discuss the news, whatever. You can sit there for hours.”
