Gal pals Ruth Schwartz, Lorraine Pirrello and Edith “Mitzie” Moscou like to spend time together doing gentle exercise, playing board games and reminiscing about old times.

But this week, these golden girls have an extra special reason to enjoy each other’s company.

They are jointly celebrating the remarkable achievement of turning 100 within days of each other.

Born in June 1921 — the same month, over at Yankee Stadium, Babe Ruth broke the career home-run record — the Manhattan residents can hardly believe the milestone they share.

“I never thought I’d reach this moment, but the years kind of crept up on me and here I am,” laughed Schwartz, a graduate of NYU who spent her career as a special needs teacher.

Her birthday is on Tuesday, three days after Moscou’s and three days before Pirrello’s.

They will attend a series of parties thrown by friends and family, but were also recently treated to a fun fête at Atria Senior Living, the place the women call home.
