The Actors Fund to Conduct Community Survey of residents over 60 years old living in the Clinton/Hell’s Kitchen and Chelsea Neighborhoods starting in early October
Are you 60 years of age or older?
And live in NYC’s Clinton/Hell’s Kitchen or Chelsea neighborhoods?
We want your point of VIEW
to better understand the quality of life of older New Yorkers.
“It’s a fact...the number of seniors is rapidly growing! By taking the survey, your vision and experience will help us understand concerns of older New Yorkers. The results will strengthen the opportunity to advocate for resources & services that you identify.”
— Angela Lansbury, Senior Community Survey Spokesperson
As an older Clinton/Hell’s Kitchen/Chelsea New Yorker, you've seen it all… now help us see the future! Use your vision and experience to help us understand what we can do to shape positive change in your neighborhood for the better.
Your feedback will be used to improve the quality of life for older New Yorkers by expanding or creating the community programs and services that you think are most important. Some of the questions on the survey are specifically for performing arts community members because so many live in these neighborhoods and because The Actors Fund is dedicated to enhancing services to this group.

Why this survey is important
With the number of people over 55 doubling in the next 20 years and Manhattan Plaza at the heart of the community already home to over 1,000 seniors, The Actors Fund is focusing in on the Clinton/Hell’s Kitchen and Chelsea neighborhoods to better understand and address the changing needs of local residents.
In partnership with The Actors Fund, The Visiting Nurse Service of New York, Manhattan Plaza’s Rodney Kirk Center & Community Board 4, the survey will be conducted from early October through December 2011, and will seek information on demographics, living arrangements, health, community concerns and specific questions designed to target issues particular to performing arts professionals. The findings will help provide a better understanding of needs, identify gaps in services and help The Actors Fund organize and further develop resources and services for seniors in the community so that people can continue living comfortably in their homes.
