Over the next twenty years, the city predicts that one in every five New Yorkers will be 60 or older. This will be the first time in the city’s history that older New Yorkers will outnumber school age children. As New Yorkers are aging their lifestyles are changing. Online social networking and blogging are creating new internet neighborhoods.
This week our guests are Caryn Resnik, Deputy Commissioner at the city’s Department for the Aging and Susannah Fox, associate editor at the Pew Internet and American Life Project.
