A senior center in Gramercy Park has finally shed its temporary space at the East End Temple and moved into its new home at the Uniformed Firefighters Association building at 204 East 23rd Street, DNAinfo reported.

Jane Barry, director of the Stein Senior Center, told DNAinfo that after they were pushed out by their former landlord International Center for the Disabled at East 24th Street and First Avenue, they were only supposed to spend three months in the basement of the temple, located at 245 East 17th Street.

The new space was originally gutted, and the center received city funds to manage the renovation, which ran to over $1 million dollars. “I’ve been working with seniors for 25 years and seniors have always been in these dingy basements,” Barry told DNAinfo. “Now they have this beautiful, new, modern place. That’s what the seniors deserve.” [DNAinfo]Hiten Samtani
