Small businesses accommodating all ages in Park Slope

Small business owners gathered Monday for an initiative called 'Age Friendly Park Slope.' 



The business owners say they will follow a set of practices that will make them more age friendly. They say this will include providing air conditioning, places to sit, openly available bathrooms, discounts and free delivery for seniors. 



"It really helps connect to the community better, and since we are a small shop we really rely on the community to shop here," says business owner Greg Bernarducci.



There are currently 60 businesses participating in the initiative. Business owners say they are hoping to double that number.
