Photo by myself on Broadway, in Midtown.
An older gentleman looked at a loss the other day, among the foot traffic and tall buildings.
Some would say that the city is not the greatest place for the elderly - people move so quickly, it's crowded, sidewalks are uneven.
On the other hand, there are grocery stores just outside one's doorway, and you don't need a car. Sort of a mixed bag, I guess.
