Support TTN

Welcome to the NEW YORK CITY Chapter 


We are women “50 and forward” who are actively exploring the many new challenges, interests, and opportunities available to them. TTN is a national organization, New York, the flagship chapter, is over 700 members strong.

Yoga Classes on Zoom by Elizabeth Hansen

As many of you know, Elizabeth Hansen, a long-time TTN member, has been teaching yoga to older adults – including many TTNers-- for over ten years. She has continued to teach yoga on Zoom and take yoga classes with it, and now, she offers Zoom Yoga classes to you, members of TTN.

She says, “In this period of lock-down, yoga is really, really good for mental and physical relaxation, not to mention to maintain physical conditioning – and offer relief from the pain and stiffness of arthritis.”

TTN NYC Chapter News - October 2020
Yes, OK, Halloween is this month, but don’t you think we have more than enough to be jittery about? So this TTN-NYC newsletter has no scary stories or goofy ideas for homemade costumes or treats for tricksters. Instead, we focus on the story of one TTN-NYC woman who helped make quite a difference in what we will see on our walks in Central Park. Read Susan Karp’s fascinating account of how the monument to the pioneers of women’s rights came to be. Also, given that we’re all in a place where self reflection is something we actually have time for, do read and comment upon Nancy Gold’s latest thoughtful offering. Catch up on TTN events from last month with Sally Dougan. Read more...

TTN NYC Chapter News - Summer 2020

Remember the “Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer”?
We’ve certainly had the (enforced) Lazy ones, and the Hazy ones, but Crazy seems an understatement for our ongoing Pandemic mode!
These are the “Hanging In” Days of Summer so far. And Hang In we will!

Some of the holidays we could be celebrating in July and August (National Ice Cream Month, National Cat Day, National Left-Handers Day) are swell, but I’d like to celebrate and give recognition to TTN for providing such good support for us throughout this challenging time.
