STUDY: Niagara Falls Worst City In Country For Retirees: Buffalo, Cheektowaga Close Behind

Despite the hype and promise of spinoff from a new casino in Niagara Falls, none of it happened. This building literally directly across the street from the Seneca Niagara Casino is one of scores of vacant buildings adjacent to the casino.

Despite the hype and promise of spinoff from a new casino in Niagara Falls, none of it happened. This building literally directly across the street from the Seneca Niagara Casino is one of scores of vacant buildings adjacent to the casino.

 

A new study ranks a world renowned tourist attraction right here at home at the bottom of the list for retirees. The widely reported study, done by Bankrate.com, ranked Niagara Falls as the number one worst city in the entire country to retire.

The study looked at nine categories: Cost of living, weather, healthcare costs, healthcare quality, taxes, crime, well-being, walkability and cultural vitality.

According to the study, Niagara Falls was dragged down by high taxes, cold, snowy weather and a well above average crime rate.

Niagara Falls is not the only city in New York ranked on the worst list. Troy ranked as the seventh worst city to retire, Buffalo as came in sixth and Cheektowaga at number five.

The best ranked city to retire to was Arlington, Virginia. Several warm-weather states followed.

“We found that smaller cities and suburbs fared the best,” said Bankrate.com analyst Jill Cornfield in a statement. “Most seniors prefer to live in these types of communities because they offer access to big-city amenities without as much hustle, bustle and crime.”

But Niagara Falls is a small city. Unfortunately, under Mayor Paul Dyster’s reign of error, the city has been received high rankings in a number of undesirable categories.

Two separate studies named Niagara Falls as the “most dangerous” municipality in New York, and the state’s Financial Restructuring Board for Local Governments found that the city is the most highly taxed in the most highly taxed state in the nation.

After Arlington, Bankrate.com found Alexandia Va., Franklin, Tenn., Silver Spring, Md., West Des Moines, Iowa, Nashville Tenn., and Sarasota, Fla., as the best locations in the nation for retirees.

Joining Niagara Falls, Cheektowaga, Buffalo and Troy on the wall of shame were Milford, Conn., New Haven, Conn., and San Bernardino Ca.

Ironically, The Niagara Frontier is home to a disproportionate number of retirees, in part due to the fact that a shortage of good paying jobs has driven many younger workers out of the region.

The plight of senior citizens living on fixed incomes here, often forced to sell their homes because of high taxes and utility bills, is a disgrace that has gone all but unnoticed by what passes for the region’s political leadership.

In Niagara Falls, Dyster just got done blowing $44 million on a new train station and, in his first two terms in office, managed to run through nearly $100 million in revenue from the Seneca-Niagara Casino on a series of projects and programs that have failed to address the city’s economic plight in any meaningful way.

But when it comes to crime, taxes and poor living conditions for retirees, he can boast that his city is Number One with a bullet.
