BROOKLYN - Officials announced the development of a replacement senior center in Red Hook Thursday.

Superstorm Sandy destroyed the original center on Walcott Street three years ago.

Officials chose an abandoned building on West Ninth Street as the center's new home.

Local seniors have been calling for a new center for years.

NYCHA says an infusion of FEMA money from Mayor Bill de Blasio's office this year has finally allowed the agency to get started on the rebuild.

Officials say construction will take about six months.
