Fairly nice place. As it was built some clusters went up over here, some over there and later spaces in between were filled in. They were numbered along the way resulting in numbers shifting wildly. Some make sense but turn the corner numbers change from 55 to 660! 500's are probably broken up the worst all over the place! So visitors can't find where they are going because there was no grand vision of organization and order in the 1960's start. Roads are extremely narrow and parking well below adequate. This might be Heritage Village's biggest turn off. You may have a dozen unit with one car garage each then only 4 or 5 spaces available. Residents with second vehicles, home companions, friends & family, the plumber, carpet cleaner, garbageman, all compete for these few coveted spots! Snow removal is a problem- no where to put the snow! Any decent winter and they have to truck it away NYC style because of the lack of generous expansive lots. But it looks good 3 out of 4 seasons! Was built for FL but in CT. The crews do a pretty good job staying on top of it and do not skimp applying sand and salt generously to make avoiding slips and falls as much as humanly possible. I was a kid in the 70's and a teen in the 80's. I remember seniors- my grandparents, neighbors, from church, friends at school their grandparents or neighbors...these people are not them!!! I see things today in Heritage Village I never saw seniors doing then; driving FAST, not yielding right of way, incomplete stopping at signs, passing, cutting off, these are not the people who retired during the Vietnam War! These people are different, most especially the women! They are seniors in name only and do not live an out of date backwards kind of lifestyle. They drive Hondas and Toyotas and Subarus for crying out loud!

Worst snow removal ever this year
Too much sand
This past store February 22 was more than enough room to push snow back and plow properly
Too many mistakes
But Common Charges go up to frequently
Board only makes votes and decisions not owners
for all areas haven't seen anything done freely yet been here three years

Just moved here. Great community for Baby Boomers coming of age and changing the landscape of retirement. .. part time employment opportunities in the area and affordable home prices that allows travel and a month or two in the sun.

My husband and I have visited Heritage Village and are strongly considering it for our retirement years. We have family in the area and love visiting our grandkids, but want to be able to come home to a quiet, peaceful, kid-free zone. I'm confident that we'll find the community very welcoming and comfortable.

HV is beautiful looking. the homes are not too well constructed. before you buy here check out those by-laws
they are antiquated and not relevant to today's world.

get use to people that have difficulty thinking "out of the box" There is no public transportation and travel to NYC is cumbersome to say the least. There are buses in town directly into nyc but the cost can be prohibative.
On the plus side:
the units themselves are comfortable and it is fairly "cheap" to live here. you have lovely space around each unit and the grounds are beautiful.
