Service Van from On Top Of The World


On Top Of The World is one of the largest 55+ communities in this area. It was begun by Sidney Colen about 50 years ago and has experienced substantial growth. Currently, there are approximately 10,000 residents, but new homes are being built at a steady pace. A huge assisted living and retirement home facility has just been completed.

The success of OTOW has been largely due to meeting the needs of older people seeking a safe and fun place to live. One of the ways OTOW helps achieve this goal, is by providing service vans like the one pictured which take residents to and from doctor's appointments, shopping centers, etc.

It has a school bus look! How fun.

There are similar ones for at least one retirement home here I can think of.

Sounds like a wonderful place. The bus service is an extra bonus for people who don't have access to transportation.

Cute name! I suppose some place like this will be our next move, but I hope to have a few more years before that. (I think when done well they are great.)
