I would say what makes my neighborhood age friendly is community engagement because we have reunions sometimes because we lived there for years and knew alot of people on our street and grew up with the adults and the children.
The children don't have home training and the neighbors break in other people homes
good transportation, good working environment and community engagement
Yes it is , there's close transportation. There's community centers & plenty of retirement homes in the area.
I feel it is somewhat age friendly because our transportation runs everywhere (pretty much any corner you can catch a kneeling bus, or take the elevator for the subway and elevated train. I don't think the people are always considerate of the elderly though. Some people won't give up their seat or take care with or show respect to all elderly people. We do have several organizations that help the elderly though.
