Hundreds gather in Riverdale for celebration honoring grandparents

Grandparents generally give gifts of chocolate chip cookies, shopping trips and most importantly love. On Sunday, hundreds of Bronx and New York residents gathered at the Hebrew Home for the Aged at Riverdale for the annual Grandparents Day Picnic and for the opening ceremony of a gift to the center, senior patrons say they will enjoy: The Jacob Reingold Pavilion.

The president of the non-profit center says the new addition is a leading example of the future of senior care. The new wing contains an aquatic therapy pool, library, spa and of course living quarters.

The center provides care to more than 3,000 seniors from the Bronx, Manhattan and Westchester.
