Westside YMCA

5 West 63rd Street
New York, NY 10023
212-875-4100website
Area: Central Park

Despite the somwhat shabby accommodations, this community center's fitness facility is a really good option for those in search of total body conditioning. The small wood-paneled workout rooms and early 20th Century photographs showing the center and its original members provide a historic feel. Plentiful stack loaded machines, treads, Concept II rowers, and ellipticals are just samples of the high-end apparatus you will find in this unique Y.

In case the abundant 21st Century machinery has distracted you from your ancestral surroundings, the lap pool will bring you right back in time. The carnival-themed tile decorating the walls is reminiscent of when the club was originally designed. The ceiling is a bit low and the room a little dark, but floating lines and bottom stripes mark the way. Set your expectations low and you should not be disappointed.

Surprisingly, the admission fee for those not staying at the Y is a steep $30/day.
