When will New York City’s senior centers reopen? City Hall offers little clarity

Though hospitalizations among seniors have dropped since COVID-19 vaccinations began, there’s still no specifics on when senior community centers in New York City can reopen, Department for the Aging (DFTA) Commissioner Lorraine Cortés-Vázquez said during Mayor Bill de Blasio’s morning briefing on Wednesday. 

Even so, de Blasio and DFTA are promising a $50 million investment tailored for seniors in the near future that adds 25 senior centers in various neighborhoods to existing centers, services, and programming.
