McBurney YMCA

125 W. 14th St.
New York, NY 10011
212-912-2300
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).
