New York, NY 10011
Village Voice's Description
Less than two years at this location (its former home, at 23rd Street and Seventh Avenue, is being renovated by David Barton), the McBurney YMCA has a heated pool open from 5:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. every weekday; terrific yoga classes at all hours; a permanent floating basketball game for players of all ages, races, and genders in its huge gym; and a padded running track that circles the pool on an upper deck. Drawbacks: The studios are in the basement, so there's no natural light, and the rental lockers have no ventilation, so you don't dare leave a damp suit. Costs run from $82 a month for adults to less than $10 monthly for kids under 12, and there are several different discounts (ask at the membership desk).
Tips from foursquare
stare at the ground when you're in the shower
SO clean/nice. Indoor track, separated cardio & weight area, basketball court w/ handball wall. Big locker rooms. Steam&sauna. They offer student discount! I often eat@sitting area on my lunch break.
While it’s one of the best pools in the city, it’s generally overcrowded and not great for a serious workout. Day passes are $25.
Dear Mgmt: when you run an establishment like a not-for-profit and charge like a business you risk losing those members who pay full price...time for a reality check.
A great family-friendly gym - integrating fitness into the family routine make a huge difference and sets great, healthy examples for all family members!
