Assemblyman Edward Braunstein presented the Selfhelp Clearview Senior Center with a $500,000 check last week.
The grant will go toward upgrading the building’s lobby, auditorium and heating. It will also help create a new handicapped walkway.
Braun stein presented the grant at a senior health and wellness forum at the senior center on June 29.
Last year, the NYC Board of Elections announced the location couldn’t be used as a poll site because of the slope of the walkway in front of the building. Once the new walkway is completed, Braunstein said he will ask the BOE to make the location a poll site again.
