Borough-by-Borough Cultural Guides for Seniors

August 04, 2011 at 12:37 pm

In an effort to make New York’s cultural treasures more accessible to all, The Alliance for the Arts has partnered with the MetLife Foundation and City Council Member Jessica Lappin to create and distribute cultural guides with important information for seniors.

In addition to providing basic information about everything from museums to zoos to theaters, the guides contain details about senior citizen discounts, accessibility information for people with disabilities, and special programming. A version of each guide is also available in large print for those who need it.
