New York University today announced the schedule for its annual summer program to provide free bus service for senior citizens at several Manhattan senior residences. The program, now in its 14th summer, enables these New Yorkers to make day-long recreational trips around the area in air-conditioned buses. The program will serve some 400 seniors.

The program, which is managed by NYU’s Office of Government and Community Relations, has arranged the following trips:

  • Sirovitch Senior Center – The Bronx Zoo
  • United Jewish Council – The Bronx Botanical Gardens
  • The Caring Community at Our Lady of Pompeii Church – The Bronx Zoo
  • The Helen Harris Center – Wave Hill
  • The Caring Community at Independence Plaza – The Coney Island Aquarium
  • St. Margaret’s House – The Bronx Botanical Gardens
  • The Jacob Riis Houses – The Bronx Zoo
  • Co-op Village Senior Care – The Circle Line, Pier 83

Lynne Brown, NYU’s Vice President for University Relations and Public Affairs, said, “In any season, New York City is spectacular and rich in cultural and recreational treasures. The University is pleased to be able to help some of our senior citizens enjoy them during the summer.”
