This center is closed for renovations.
The 60th Street wing of the recreation center is being reconstructed with an indoor state-of-the-art pool; new electrical, plumbing, and HVAC systems; a new First Aid room; improvements to the gymnasium and a new cardio room. A new addition to the building, with three levels, is also being constructed. Men’s and women’s locker rooms, a family changing room, and lifeguards’ locker rooms will be on the lower level. A youth activities room, computer room, multi-purpose room, and bathrooms will be on the ground floor. Aerobics and fitness rooms will be on the second floor. All three floors will be accessible via an elevator and staircases.
The façade of the existing building will be reconstructed and complemented by brick detailing on the new addition.
The 60th Street building was opened June 28, 1906 and at that time contained a public bath, or indoor swimming pool, as well as showers for men and women.
Please note: Other recreation centers in Manhattan which have indoor swimming pools are Tony Dapolito, Chelsea, East 54th Street and Hansborough.
