Second Saturdays at the Center
New York Prime Timers' Second Saturday events are open to both members and non-members. The gatherings are informal opportunities for mature gay and bisexual men to meet-and-greet both with older men and with younger men who like older men. Most of the Second Saturday events are held in the LGBT Community Center in Manhattan.
The Next Second Saturday Event
In February, New York Prime Timers will move its Second Saturday event from the usual location, the Center, to the Ukrainian East Village Restaurant. See the Events page for details. New York Prime Timers will resume its Second Saturday events at the Center on Saturday, March 11, at 2 p.m.
To help pay for the rental of the space, New York Prime Timers will ask members to contribute $3 and non-members $5. RSVPs are not required.
The LGBT Community Center is handicap accessible and is conveniently located near public transportation at 208 West 13th Street, between Seventh and Eighth Avenues, in Manhattan. The closest subway stop is 14th Street at Seventh Avenue on the 1, 2, and 3 lines. The next closest station is 14th Street at Eighth Avenue on the A, C, E, and L lines, which has elevators.
