Dear New Yorker,
We're thrilled to announce the release of the NYC ARTS Cultural Guides for Seniors.
These guides, which were developed in cooperation with the Alliance for the Arts as part of the City's Age-Friendly NYC Initiative, contain information about more than 300 arts and cultural institutions citywide, organized by borough.
They also list over 85 free or low-cost programs designed specifically for seniors and include special discounts on admission and memberships, as well as important information about accessibility for those with sight, hearing or mobility concerns. New York's cultural institutions are among the best in the world, and we hope that with these guides older New Yorkers will be better able to access and take advantage of all of the amazing programs and opportunities that these institutions have to offer.
We'd like to thank the Alliance for the Arts and NYC Department of Cultural Affairs Commissioner Kate Levin for all of the time and hard work that they put into the creation of these wonderful guides.
Special thanks as well to all of the advocates and advocacy groups who've been working with us to help make New York a better place to grow old and retire in.
To download one or more of these free guides, click here or visit the Alliance for the Arts' website at www.allianceforarts.org.
Thanks so much and enjoy the rest of your summer!
