The country’s first technology-themed center for people 60 and up, the Senior Planet Exploration Center opened January 2013 at 127 West 25th Street, in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood.
The center hosts classes, workshops, talks and social and cultural events, offering older New Yorkers a comfortable space to learn, work and explore new ways to thrive in today’s digital world.
Technology is at the heart of the Exploration Center. We help seniors harness its power to enhance health, finances, social connections, civic engagement, creativity and lifelong learning.
