New York Sports Clubs Open to Help

By now, most people in the New York area seem to at least have found power. Maybe it’s a few miles away, but people have proved very resourceful in finding ways to recharge their laptops/cell phones/etc!

I’ve constantly been telling friends that if they want to come to my place, I can offer water, power, shelter, and some fresh-baked scones 🙂 But in case that’s too far for some of you, I heard today from my contact at New York Sports Clubs that they are officially opening their doors to help too.

In an effort to offer the comforts of home to all those who have been affected, the New York Sports Clubs will be opening its doors to all victims for full use of its facilities, whether it’s the need for a hot shower, to charge a cell phone battery, or simply to recharge their batteries with a stress-relieving workout. Beginning today, October 31st, and running through November 14th, all clubs and staff will be opening their arms – and doors – to lend a helping hand. See a list of the participating clubs below.

Your readers can find a club near them by visiting, which is being updated regularly with a list of open clubs. If they do not have internet access it is pretty safe to say that all clubs north of 38th St. in Manhattan will be open. Note: Local residents 18 or older; must show a photo ID.

Manhattan: West 115, West 125, West 145, West 38, West 41, West 44, West 49, West 62, West 73, West 76, West 80, West 94, 34th and Park, East 41, East 48, East 51, East 59, East 76,East 86, East 91, Grand Central
NYC Boroughs: Park Slope, Astoria, Bay Ridge 86th Street, Bayridge, Brooklyn Belt, Cobble Hill, Court Street, Morris Park, Rego Park, Sunnyside, Whitestone, Forest Hills, Glendale, Midwood
Long Island: Woodmere, Deer Park, Garden City, Great Neck
Upstate New York: White Plains, Garnerville, New Rochelle, Scarsdale, Croton

I love that not only are they allowing people to shower and charge their phones, but they’re also offering the chance to workout. With so many people cooped up in tiny apartments for so long, I know that a lot of just want to get out and move! Sometimes it is the little silly creature comforts that can go a long way toward making us feel safe and okay.

Thank you, New York Sports Clubs, for your generosity!
