Creating an Age-Friendly City
"Right now, there are over 1 million older New Yorkers living in the city, and by 2030 this number is expected to increase by 50% -- the most rapid increase in history. Soon, NYC will have more older adults than school-aged children.
To prepare for this transformation, The Office of the Mayor, the New York City Council, and the New York Academy of Medicine partnered to create Age-friendly NYC. Healthy, active and engaged older people are assets to all areas of city life. Age-friendly NYC challenges all sectors of the city to re-imagine aging and consider how best to serve and benefit from this growing population."
