BAY RIDGE - Bay Ridge residents are in shock after learning their senior center will shut its doors at the end of the month. The center, located inside St. John's Church, is scheduled to close due to a lack of funding. It was originally scheduled to close in June, and many seniors say they are worried they won't have a reason to leave their homes once it's gone. The city's Department for the Aging says the facility is closing due to consistently poor ratings. However, visitors say they love the programs and that they were not consulted on the closure. Church officials say they will keep the center open one day a week until the end of June as they search for funding. Bay Ridge senior center closing unexpectedly
