Weinberg Center for Balanced Living (WCBL) is known on the Lower East Side as the “young” senior center. Over 70% of our members are recent retirees, and our offerings reflect the diverse interests of Baby Boomers. Group exercise, arts & education, advocacy & social events, as well as fresh kosher breakfast and lunch are all available Monday-Friday.

Check out our monthly calendar HERE to get the most up to date information. Case workers are also available to answer questions about Medicare, Social Security, housing, and other issues. Please visit the Weinberg Office on the 4th Floor of Manny Cantor Center (197 East Broadway) to sign up for membership.

Educational Alliance has compiled a list of resources and support services in the Lower East Side and East Village available to you during the COVID-19 outbreak in the New York City area. From pharmacies that offer delivery and Kosher meal delivery, to mental health and legal services, we hope these resources are useful to you during these difficult times. 

While MCC is closed, we are continuing to offer virtual WCBL classes, which you can find by clicking on the button below.
