Tony Bennett still enjoys the simple pleasures in life.
The legendary singer was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2016.
He enjoyed a rare public outing Thursday as he soaked up the sun in Central Park in New York City.
Tony Bennett, 95, was accompanied by an aide and his wife, Susan Benedetto, his primary caretaker.
It was the first time he had been photographed in a wheelchair.
The “I Left My Heart In San Francisco” crooner has not been seen often in public since retiring from his eight-decade music career last year.
Tony Bennett performed his final shows in August 2021 at Radio City Music Hall with longtime fan and recent collaborator Lady Gaga.
After Thanksgiving, their “One Last Time” concert aired as a CBS special.
The unlikely pair released two albums together, 2014’s “Cheek to Cheek” and 2021’s “Love for Sale,” winning Grammy Awards for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album.
In an interview, Susan Benedetto, whom Tony Bennett married in 2007 after nearly 20 years together, said that her husband still recognizes her and his children.
Tony Bennett has four kids from two previous marriages: sons Danny, 68, and Dae, 67, with their first wife Patricia Beech, to whom he was married from 1952 to 1971.
And daughters Joanna, 52, and Antonia, 48, with his second wife Sandra Grant, to whom he was married from 1971 to 1983.
