New York Times, daily newsletter of the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP). Founded in 1851, the New York Times newsletter is an indispensable source of information for AARP members, with articles tailored specifically for persons 55 and older, as well as news and views from columnists such as Frank Rich, Thomas Friedman, and Maureen Dowd, who provide an elder perspective on issues of the day. The New York Times also helps seniors explore their world with a travel section for retirees with ample disposable income and a food section that highlights interesting, but safe, dining excursions in Manhattan. Despite the newsletter’s many senior-oriented offerings, most AARP members say they subscribe strictly for the New York Times crossword puzzle, which helps keep their minds sharp.
