Just because you are older doesn’t mean you should stop participating in the activities that give you pleasure. In fact, you probably have more time now than ever to enjoy what matters to you most. Whether it’s singing or dancing or learning or exploring, our wide variety of fun and engaging activities offers something for everyone.
Scott Gordon, our very talented Director of Activities, gets to know each new resident and their interests. Our varied daily activity schedule begins at 10 am and ends with the showing of our 6:45 pm movie. We have professional musicians who perform for our residents, intergenerational events with student volunteers from local schools, discussion groups, theatre performances, bridge clubs, exercise classes and many other events throughout the day.
Because we’re in the heart of Manhattan, all of New York City’s finest cultural and educational institutions are nearby. Perhaps you might like to go out on your own and listen to a lecture at the 92 Street Y, swim at Asphalt Green, see a Broadway show or enjoy a concert at Carnegie Hall. The cultural and educational possibilities in New York City are endless.
