50 senior centers falling victim to budget cuts

The New York Times obtained the city’s list of the 50 senior centers slated to shutter July 1 as a result of budget cuts. The facilities on the list include 16 in Manhattan, 11 in Brooklyn, 10 in Queens, nine in the Bronx and four in Staten Island (see the full list below). They were selected by the Bloomberg administration because they served the fewest meals, were open for the fewest hours or had maintenance or management issues. An additional 25 senior centers could close by July 1 if the state does not contribute as much funding as the city currently expects. [NYT]
