Google Maps: Population Over Age 65 Per NY Census Tract [KML] [iframe] 

Map uploaded on September 14, 2017.

Due to the limited number of jobs, and nice relaxing atmosphere, the Catskills and Adirondacks are popular places for seniors to retire to in their final years. Overall, rural parts of the state tend to be older and have more senior citizens. Some census tracts also have a lot of senior housing and retirement homes, which is why they appear a dark red. Blue and greens have smaller percentage of the population as seniors, while reds and oranges have more seniors.
