It is age friendly because there are people of all ages here, and many are older people. We all live well together. We help each other, and find the seniors to be great sources of information, with lots of life experience to share.

Everyone is on their phones no one talks face to face. Very rude. No manners whatsoever. No role models for our kids. They are brats and so spoiled. So sad

I can access most services as well as a Hospital within a short distance. There are no steep hills when I am on foot. There is also transportation for the elderly.

There is a wide range of age groups in my neighborhood. Younger adults are always ready to help out. If a mature adult needs help with lawn care or snow removal for example the younger adults are there

The cost of housing here is very high. Most young families are not able to live here. So there are many pharmacies, food stores, and older population friendly activities.

Age-friendly - lots of sidewalks, stores close by, restaurants & coffee shops close by, good subway & bus service Age-unfriendly - Everything is fast-paced (ex: grocery store); sometimes it's too fast for me to keep up
