Weinberg Center for Balanced Living

WCBL is thrilled by the mayor’s announcement that centers can start offering outdoor activities immediately and restart indoor activities. While we work hard to make sure the center is in top shape for you, please be sure to take advantage of the programs we already have up and running like MCC’s Open Streets, WCBL virtual activities, one-on-one social services appointments, and grab and go meal services starting June 29 with limited capacity.

To make a social service appointment or for any questions, please reach out to us at 646-395-4187 or email info@mannycantor.org.

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.
