hose accustomed to life in the northeastern U.S. tend to
want to stay there. While the Northeast is best known
for some of the most bustling cities in the country,
Philadelphia and NYC, in the Keystone State.

settled into a Traditions of America community, 55 and up
neighborhoods located on the outskirts of Pennsylvania’s most
popular cities. Here are their stories.
