Let’s Hope No One Goes “Postal” In This Town!
I heard something on the news last night that I did not know previously, and I thought it was pretty cool. There is an entire community in Florida made up of retired postal workers! It’s called Nalcrest, an acronym for National Association of Letter Carriers Retirement, Education, Security and Training.
Nalcrest features 500 garden-style apartments, arranged in clusters of four to 10 apartments, and all are on ground level. Efficiency, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments are available, ranging from $395 to $520 per month. All are leased unfurnished on a yearly basis. Rental fee includes water, sewage, trash removal, basic cable TV, interior and exterior maintenance and use of all recreational facilities. Oddly enough, is that, despite being a retirement community for postal letter carriers, there is no home mail delivery – residents must pick up their mail at the post office in the Town Center. Ah, there’s always a catch. I thought this was a cool idea and am hoping to create a similar community for retired DJ’s. In my complex, the old rock DJ area of the community there would be a tattoo parlor, a pharmacy, a bar/strip joint and a out door pagoda where old rock bands would come perform. That should cover it I think.
