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