The Westchester Department of Senior Programs and Services is located in a distinctive and historic 10-story building in downtown Mount Vernon. Known locally as the "former Con Edison Building" it is located at the corner of South First Avenue and East First Street, very near the Mount Vernon Public Library, the main branch of the city's post office, and the downtown Mount Vernon Metro North commuter train station on the New Haven line.

Visitors to the Department of Senior Programs and Services may enter the building through the Executive Entrance located on South First Avenue. Metered parking is available on the street.

By rail
The office is located next to the (downtown) Mount Vernon East station of the New Haven Division of the Metro North rail road. This line also provides service to Pelham, New Rochelle, Mamaroneck, Rye and Port Chester.

Note that the Fleetwood and Mount Vernon West stations are on the Harlem Division rail line which does not provide service to the area in which our office is located.
