After being closed for nearly eight months due to renovations, the Melrose Mott Haven Senior Center is finally ready to welcome back its regulars.
The center was shut down after being criticized for having deteriorating conditions, like leaks and rotting ceiling tiles.
Council member Rafael Salamanca Jr. was a big proponent of these renovations, putting pressure on NYCHA to make these repairs.
The center offers programs like Zumba, nutrition workshops and even serves as a cooling center throughout the summer.
