HOBOKEN - A senior center in Hoboken has reopened its doors for the first time since Sandy.

The first phase of renovations provided comforts like new tables, a new ramp and railing, and new electronic bingo equipment.

Mayor Dawn Zimmer cut the ribbon on the rebuilt senior center. Zimmer says she's excited about what the center will mean to seniors. "This is a place where they come, they see each other,” Zimmer says. “And you know the community spirit really is what carried Hoboken through the challenges of Hurricane Sandy and it’s an important part of Hoboken."

Renovations are being funded by a $700,000 grant from FEMA. Electrical fittings have been raised in preparation for future storms.

The city is also working on bringing back a day care center that serves needy families in Hoboken.
