2017.02.25 00:30

An age-friendly business is one that welcomes older adult consumers and works towards meeting the needs of this diverse, fast-growing and economically powerful consumer base.

Age-friendly NYC challenges all sectors of NYC to see the opportunity in population aging. An initiative of the New York Academy of Medicine.

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 reimagine aging and consider how best to serve and benefit from this growing population.
