Senior centers were documented to have a positive effect on older population’s well-being. This study focuses on the relationship between socio-economic status and geographic access to senior centers in New York City (NYC). There are 2.6 million persons who are 65 and over in New York State in 2010, which increases needs for delivery of services in the community. Senior centers help maintain the independence of older adults in community. However, there is a lack of study of disparities in access to senior centers among low-income minority aging population.
