NEW YORK HEALTH & RACQUET CLUB
Number of locations: 8
Here, on the other hand, you probably won’t find anyone who’s rushing to sign up for disco anything. NYHRC is the city’s emeritus gym, and its tony indifference to faddish classes and star instructors can be refreshing. Every location has a pool, three have squash and racquetball, and two have basketball courts. Members get access to the beach club in New Rochelle and the 75-foot yacht that tours the East River nightly from spring to fall.
