New York City seniors are all dressed up and ready to shut down some myths about what it means to grow up. And just a heads-up, they're gonna make your selfies look like total amateur hour while they're at it.

29 Photos Prove Getting Older Doesn't Mean Getting Less Badass.

Shoutout to the Stylin' Seniors — on Facebook, Instagram, and Tumblr — for shining a positive light on aging gracefully and what the senior community is all about.
"This is for that person who is looking at a senior center, who is 60, and thinks, 'I'm not old enough for this,'" Minners says. "I want them to know it's not true. A lot of fun can be had, no matter your age."

How many times have you thought about something you want to try and thought: "Bummer. I'm too old to do that now." Well, you're not. And when you see the incredible photos Henry took of seniors crossing the line at the NYC Marathon, you'll remember why.

There is a multibillion-dollar industry that pushes us to try to look as young as possible. After looking at these photos and seeing how wonderful aging can be, it's clear we could all learn a thing or two from these seniors.

Now excuse me, I'm going to go call my grandma.

I want to know their secrets for looking so young. Not one of them look to be the age they say they are. In fact some of them look younger than I am. Thanks for sharing this Robert.
