Seniors at the Catholic Charities Neighborhood Services Howard
Beach Senior Center gathered Tuesday for a New Year’s party
sponsored by state Sen. Joe Addabbo Jr. (D-Howard Beach) and
Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder (D-Far Rockaway) at the group’s
temporary location in St. Helen’s Father Dooley Hall. The center
was displaced after Hurricane Sandy destroyed its home in the
basement of the Rockwood Park Jewish Center, but Catholic Charities
Vice President of Older Adult Services Judy Kleve announced at the
party that will find a new home soon in the organization’s senior
apartment complex under construction at the former Fineson
Developmental Center on Cross Bay Boulevard.
