Article in City Lab links quality of neighborhood with health for seniors

In age-friendly parlance, “aging in place or in community,” is the goal. However, this article makes the point that some adults are living in neighborhoods that may be making them sick. Their communities aren’t safe, they aren’t walkable and they lack good public transportation and other resources. As one of our early projects in Age-Friendly Boston, we’ve partnered with Walk Boston on making walking improvements to three pilot neighborhoods, Mattapan Square, the South End, and East Boston.
