Dear Friends of Carter Burden Network,

The building in which our Carter Burden Luncheon Club & Senior Program (the Club) is located has been sold.  The new owner, The Church of the Epiphany (Epiphany), will be renovating the entire building, a project expected to take 18 – 24 months.  Our senior center has suspended services at its current location, 351 East 74 Street, until the renovations are complete. Epiphany will stay in the building it has sold until the renovations of the East 74 Street site are complete. Epiphany has also invited us to serve daily luncheon meals at its current site, 1353 York Avenue, New York, NY 10021.

The situation regarding exact start dates for activities is fluid.  The good news is that the NYC Department for the Aging has approved our plan to serve daily congregate meals at Epiphany.  The tentative date for the start of luncheon meals at Epiphany on York Ave is September 23rd.  

In the meantime, the following are sites near CBLC that provide daily luncheon meals:

We are excited about the improvements to its space that the Club will gain.  The entire building and our senior center space will be handicap accessible. We will have an enhanced kitchen and dining room.  There will be elevator access to other floors for programming as well as to the roof deck.

We have found a wonderful partner in The Church of the Epiphany.  Father Cole and his team have been extremely helpful and have kept us informed of the status of the renovation.  We are very fortunate to work with them. 

We look forward to welcoming you to the Grand Re-Opening of our senior center. In the interim, we hope you will join us for congregate meals at the Epiphany location, 1353 York Avenue (b/w 72nd and 73rd), New York, NY 10021. Please check back on the status for the commencement of lunch and programming at the Epiphany location once the date is finalized.
