"Can I Grow Old Here?:  Aging in New York City"

As New York City faces the challenges of a growing older adult population, it strives to become more “age-friendly” through a framework developed by the Aging and Life course Program of the World Health Organization. Against this backdrop, on-going redevelopment seeks to transform urban spaces. This work explores the potential impact of an historic rezoning and urban renewal project in Jamaica, Queens on older adults and their opportunities for growing older and “aging-in-place” in New York City.

Alex Costley, Assistant Professor, Health and Physical Education, “Urban Renewal and Aging”.
