|Right now, there are 1 million people over 65 living in NYC, 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 rethink aging and consider how best to serve and benefit from this growing population.
SCHOOLS, COLLEGES, AND UNIVERSITIES
Age-friendly NYC has created a database to connect older New Yorkers with free and discounted educational and cultural opportunities offered by local colleges and universities. Search the database to find local offerings»
