In this Tuesday, May 10, 2011 picture, Jenny Rodriquez, 69, leads a gathering of seniors in song during a visit to the La Marqueta, an East Harlem marketplace, traveling by school bus in New York. School buses that sit idle between their morning and afternoon runs transport seniors like Rodriquez to various activities as part of the city's "Age-Friendly NYC" program.
