Hello from NYC - Looking for comfy gravel bike?

Hello everyone and happy to be back on a bicycle!
Need some advice and\or opinions on a few bikes.
I'm 48, 230lbs, 6'2 tall, looking for a bike which will give a comfy ride so I can ride longer and lose some weight.
My current bike which I am retiring is a 1993 Iron Horse AT 200

Right now looking at either
Fuji Tread 1.1 Disc Road Bike - 2016
or
Jamis RENEGADE EXPAT 2017

Both bikes are right at my upper budget level.
I like the Shimano 105 on the Fuji but not sure about aluminum frame.
I believe Jamis 520 chromoly frame may provide a smoother ride and 36mm\40mm tires with 32H spoke rims is + to me.
Most riding will be done on Brooklyn streets (maybe some hard dirt paths) so that's why looking for a Gravel bike with wider tires to help cushion the bumps.

Thank you,
Vadim
