Activities for seniors in Brooklyn Heights
Brooklyn Bridge Park:

The park that runs along the East River in Brooklyn is a great place to take your home care patient for a peaceful day outdoors. The 85-acre park includes a nice mix of nature and social activity as kids play and adults stay active. Much of the park includes a beautiful view of the Manhattan skyline and the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges. There are accessible bathrooms around the park and plenty of places to stop and rest, making it a park that everyone can enjoy. Check the weather before you go. Bring plenty of water with you in the summer and bundle up in the winter.

Brooklyn Historical Society:

If you’d like a low-key, quiet day out with your senior, the Brooklyn Historical Society might be a good idea. The building houses a library that contains thousands of books, articles, maps, photographs, paintings, and various artifacts covering the history of Brooklyn. The museum has permanent installations celebrating Brooklyn landscape paintings throughout history and featuring portraits of prominent New Yorkers. Current and future exhibits cover professional hockey in Brooklyn, photographs and letters between Brooklynites from the Civil War, Brooklyn sewers, Brooklyn abolitionists, and a replica of the Emancipation Proclamation. If your senior is a history buff, this would be a great way to stimulate their mind and give them something to concentrate on.
 
Check the Brooklyn Historical Society website to plan your visit. Admission is based on donations, with a discounted rate offered for seniors. The building is wheelchair accessible from their 128 Pierrepont Street entrance with elevators for every floor. Wheelchair accessible bathrooms are on the first floor. 718-222-4111.

Cadman Plaza Park:

Located on the border of Brooklyn Heights and Downtown Brooklyn, Cadman Plaza offers you and your senior a nice place to relax and enjoy the outdoors. The park features a newly renovated central lawn and contains the William Jay Gaynor Memorial, Korean War Veterans Plaza, and the unfinished Brooklyn War Memorial dedicated the Brooklynites who served in WWII. There is ample shade for those hot summer days and plenty of room to walk about for a few hours. Check the weather before you go. Bring plenty of water with you in the summer and bundle up in the winter.

The Heights Players:

If you and your senior want to see community theatre in the Brooklyn Heights area, The Heights Players are a must. The not-for-profit organization is registered as a New York State charity and offers senior discounts. They have evening and matinee showings, so be sure to check their schedule to see what day and time works best for you. They are in such high demand that it is suggested that you reserve your place vide email or phone two weeks before the show. They are located at 26 Willow Place and you can call 718-237-2752 for more information.
