List of Senior Centers to Close Released
March 3rd, 2011

The Department for the Aging released a list of 105 senior centers set to shutter if the city does not receive $25 million in funding from Albany.

According to the department, the state shifted money traditionally allocated to city senior centers to child welfare programs, effectively slashing the senior center budget by a third. If not restored, the cut would close 22 centers in the Bronx, 31 in Brooklyn, 26 in Manhattan, 22 in Queens and 4 in Staten Island.

The department decided to cut each community district by 30 percent. Any senior center that served less than 85 meals per day was selected for slashing.

Now that the list is out, you can imagine state legislators phones will be ringing off the hook. Politically speaking, the list may motivate pols to find cash — any cash — to save their neighborhood center (and potentially those votes).

Here is the list in full:

    The real results of the theft, mismanagement, and greed of the financial “industry” melt-down is here. No more stimulus money to blunt the effects.
    If the effete gamblers of Wall Street can make million dollar bonuses after wreaking havoc on the entire nation we can find the money to keep these centers open. And don’t even think about pitting poor children against poor seniors.
    Enforcing the “millionaire’s tax” is considered politically unfeasible so we raid the meager storehouse of the poor. Shame on us.

    These Senior Centers are filled with men & women who have fought in World Wars and other Military Actions that have defended our Nation and our Democratic way of Life. Certainly there are other sources of revenue and wealthy people who have benefitted from the sacrifices our GI’s have made to protect and Defend this Nation. Seniors deserve every resource that we can provide during their twilight years.

    I don’t understand why they have to attacking senior they work, they fight, they give you opportunity. I think this is the time they enjoy the social life. And The Bay Ridge senior center serve over 450 meals on wheels, after April 1st who will deliver any meals to those senior? I think governor is making big mistake he does not know what he doing and I will not vote for him and his political group!
