The challenges in transforming a city as large and complex as New York City are many, and lasting changes cannot be made by the public sector alone. The participation of partners from every part of New York is what sustains this initiative and drives it forward. Age-friendly New York City has built an extensive network of partners that contribute to and participate in the initiative. It is through their help and continued support that we are able to make large-scale changes with impact. For information on how you can partner with Age-friendly New York City, please contact us.
