Celebrating Our Seniors is a citywide family-fun day that tells the story of New York through the eyes of its longest lived citizens, our seniors. It’s a time to honor the beauty of intergenerational relationships. Join this afternoon of oral histories, crafts, interactive activities, music, and dance. All ages are welcome.

Looking to the past to honor the present, the highlight of the day is the celebratory “Walk Through Time.” This pre-set path highlights the New York experience one decade at a time starting with the 1940’s. Come tell us your story and share it with other generations.

You can participate in as much or as little of the event as you like, at your own leisure.  Advance registration is free. Sign up today at:
