A Big Apple a Day ...

With my hitting the half-century mark on Thursday, it's good to hear I may still have nearly 30 years left on this planet -- so long as I stay put in the (212)!
New Yorkers are living 1 ¹/₂ years longer than a decade ago and nearly nine years longer than 25 years ago, city Health Department data show. City residents’ life expectancy extended to 81.2 years in 2015, the most recent year for which data is available. In 1990, it was just 72.4 years. City women could expect to live 83.5 years, the data showed, five years longer than men (78.6). With a life expectancy of 82.4 years, city Latinos live on average a year longer than whites (81.3) and five years longer than blacks (77.3). The city did not report the rate for Asians. In addition to longer life expectancies, the new Summary of Vital Statistics revealed other signs that New Yorkers are living healthier, happier lives.
