The youngest children would be around 78 or 79 so some might be in their early 80s. Given that - from the figures I found, there are approximately 1.6 million Jews in New York, and in the general population about 2.7 people are 80 or older - this amounts to around 30K people. So, I could easily see that they could feed thousands of survivors in New York.
