Now NYers over the age of 60 will have more access to participate in the virtual world. A 2,700-square-foot technology senior center in Chelsea has been created to give senior citizens access to the internet. Senior Planet Exploration Center, run by a nonprofit, has a computer lab with 23 computers, smart phone and table training programs, and video games. With over 50% of seniors online, the center hopes to help them take part in learning about every aspect of the Web.
The center will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
