Coffeehouse Older Adult Center has been serving the Hell’s Kitchen/Chelsea neighborhood since the early 1970’s—starting as a help desk in the Port Authority Bus Terminal where the elderly “sitters” congregated and growing over time to become a full-service senior center with funding from the NYC Department for the Aging.
For 30 years, the center operated in a building near Times Square, at 551 Ninth Avenue, owned by Port Authority. In 2012, with enormous assistance from the Port Authority, the site secured a larger home in McCaffrey Hall, which resides in the undercroft of the Holy Cross Church. In 2013, a $1.1 million buildout of the space was completed by Charles Lauster Architect, P.C., which transitioned the senior center into a fully handicap-accessible space with a commercial grade kitchen.
Our center has returned to providing freshly prepared meals to members on a first come, first served basis. These hot, nutritious meals can be eaten onsite or taken to go.
To support older New Yorkers in living active, engaging, and independent lives within their communities, we continue to offer an array of online and in-person classes taught by certified instructors and other qualified professionals residing throughout NYC.
