Editor’s Note: TheBoken.com Had Some Family Business To Attend To

Middle Grove Road Home

Dear Boken.com Readers:

This site has not been as active as it normally has been in recent weeks due to a combination of work related deadlines and my parents needing major help due to declining health. Getting old is not easy but the alternative is even worse (not getting old).  I know  I am not the only person to go through something like this but I want to thank the many Hoboken people I have spoke to about it to get some perspective and understanding. Thanks for the support.

There may not be much I can do about my parents health but I think I have found them a better place to live for the short time they have left or before they need assisted living. It will be a 1st floor apartment two blocks from the hospital in Saratoga Springs, NY if their rental application is approved. Once I get them moved out the plan would be to sell their farmhouse that needs a ton of interior work. The location is just 10 minutes from Saratoga Springs NY so I think ultimately it will have appeal to a NYC area buyer. There are 6 1/2 acres with the property and creek access to the Kaydeross creek that feeds Saratoga Lake. I feel that the property and location near the track are the keys to the value of this property. It won’t be easy for me to sell emotionally but I know it is the right thing to do for my parents. Any future takers?

Above and below are some photos of the property and house. Wish me luck as I attempt to throw away 45 years of accumulation and get my mother 100% on board with downsizing…
