With Pushcart, in Chelsea

Chelsea, NYC
Photo by myself, somewhere in Chelsea.

I've written before that it's not easy for the elderly to get around the city. In fact, it's a mixed bag.

Walking up and down multiple stairs to the subway or to one's apartment can be difficult, and sidewalks are often crowded and uneven. But the buses are a great alternative and they're reliable, too.

If you live in an elevator building, then daily life is much easier. You can get groceries delivered for a few bucks.

Thanks for posting. The picture of my grandmother in NYC with her "pushcart" is burned in my brain. Now, suddenly, I'll be using one soon myself.
