McBurney YMCA

125 W. 14th St.
New York, NY 10011
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).
