nr. Sixth Ave.

McBurney Y -- great for swimmers, not for much else

  • No, I would not go back!

Nice pool, but a shortage of workout studios. Tons of space to eat snacks and surf laptops while folks stretch by the water fountain because they didn't build enough studios. Did I mention no sunlight? No sunlight, so it's flourescent heaven. Employees are not very happy -- lots of supervisor turnover while I was there. It's a little like exercising on the moon with the purple light and the recirculated air. I like gyms with sunshine and windows and fresh air.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
