When planning out what you want to see in the Big Apple, the many sites, tours, shows, plays, and museums can sometimes become overwhelming. As a senior, you may want to know which destinations offer suitable transportation and accommodations for the elderly. Here are three senior-friendly attractions you must plan for while in New York. 

So Much to Do

1. Art Attractions

New York has a special place for art aficionados. Seniors who visit frequently can take advantage of the Theater Development Fund’s membership that offers big discounts to Broadway and off-Broadway shows year-round. If you are visiting for a short time, you can still find plenty of deals in the city’s many museums. For example, you can have a transportation service take you to the Metropolitan Museum of Art or the American Museum of Natural History. Both museums offer senior discounts, ensure accessibility for those with a disability, provide free admission to any caregivers of those with a disability, provide large print booklets, and pass out assisted listening devices.

2. Classic Harbor Line Cruise

You can also enjoy the hustle and bustle of New York City from afar. Classic Harbor Line Cruise can be a perfect option for those who want to see and do it all but have limited mobility to navigate the busy city. Board a senior-friendly cruise and learn about the city’s history and admire the skyline, landmarks, and sunsets while enjoying the ocean breeze and a comfortable seat. Cruise staff members will accommodate seniors who may need extra assistance navigating their way on and off-deck. While the restrooms are below deck, the wide stairwells provide enough room for someone to assist those in need up and down the handful of steps.

3. Union Square Greenmarket

transportationIf you love local farmers’ markets, you will enjoy the world-renowned Union Square Greenmarket. Since 1976, this market has offered locally-grown fruits and vegetables, baked goods, cheeses, fish, wine, and so much more. Seniors who love sampling and want to implement new cooking techniques can sign up for cooking demonstrations or attend a book signing at the market’s Food Book Fair. There’s no need for concern over the market’s size because you can easily get transportation without walking far. Their website offers a map so you can easily choose which stands you want to visit without traveling too far.
