Posted Oct 04 2017:
Like other reviews state, this location in particular has a long standing problem with bitter, jealous trolls. I have a theory: maybe these guys were banished from other locations, either by management or just by anger from other annoyed cruisers.

As BerlinNY mentioned, King Troll (or as named by the scratchitti in the dry sauna, Mr. Giggles) rules this place with an iron fist. He will snicker, guffaw, whisper and cock block his way up and down the wet area. Instead of perhaps spending some time on the equipment upstairs in the actual gym (which is actually really nice and has lots of equipment), Mr. Giggles and his pear-shaped clan take up residence in the basement for hours on end.

The only reprieve is on some weekend mornings and I mean early.

Save yourself the trouble. Go elsewhere if you're actually looking to play and not take part in petty games and gossip.

Part of me wishes for the crackdowns to resume, just so Mr. Giggles can get his comeuppance.

It is amazing to me that they managed to boot every single cruiser save Birdman, King Troll, and Velociraptor. These three Vultures on Viagra still haunt the locker room all the time. Save for their painful desperation this club is now officially dead.

Those who want to get off, head to Wall Street.

Thanks for the update! I'd be tempted to delete this spot except for the amazingly negative yet well-written Reviews!

Yet, maybe the three you single out — and a few others — still enjoy themselves here. I'd love to hear from some of them, too. ~ Editor

Heads Up!
It has gotten more extreme since the last update. There are a few 'uncaught' cruisers. They recently hired a hot young off duty cop in a towel to entice and witness in order to threaten arrest and rid themselves of the sex trolls.

If you go here, use the shower and get out, don't even consider the sauna or steam. If you are hot go to Wall Street, if not go to the Y, they put up with anything these days.

Management is so determined to rid this place of the Seniors on Cialis they are regularly coming in and calling the cops several times a day. They are on a rampage.

I last was there months ago. I was so sick of the ancient men who get lewd with everyone under 50. Recently went back and it is cleaner during the week (weekends are still disgusting) and the locker room attendant walks into the sauna/steam about every five minutes. Yet still trolls abound.

It is worse than ever before. Filthy, no locker room attendant on weekends and old men rule, grabbing ankles and being lewd and suggestive.

I would never think of cruising this place, there is no way I could get wood around that creepy lot.

Trolls, Trolls, Trolls. This place has become a fetid cesspool of trolls.

The club is filthy and poorly maintained and the Seniors on Cialis rule the wet area. Stay away.

Contrary to prior reports, this gym is still rather active. Definitely much more more hit than miss, though you often have to be patient for some people who don't play to leave. Busiest times are evenings and weekends, you'll find a wide variety of men, some really hot guys and a good number of trolls, but plenty in between.

No sex here, however if you're looking for a good gym with friendly staff, this is the place. The locker room at least affords a look at some very nice cock.

I go there frequently and use the steamroom and sauna. There is almost nothing going on. It's a bore for sex, though the health club itself is excellent.

Not as hot as it was a few years ago, but there's almost always something going on here. Unfortunately 80% of the time it involves one of a handful of trolls that frequent the place, don't work out, and hang around the wet area for hours. That other 20% of the time there can be some real hot guys. If you're careful, I've never had a problem with getting caught. If you're with someone who isn't being discreet, then I suggest you walk away.

Heads Up!
Gym management will call the cops who walk straight to the steamroom and arrest people.


Posted Jan 20 2009:
The talk about trolls is uninformed. I've been a member of this club for six years. The action used to be hot. Sure there were a few older guys, but nothing like the descriptions in earlier posts. No action in recent months because of a club crackdown.


Posted Apr 06 2008:
I've been going here for years and the troll reports are definitely pretty accurate. This place used to be super-hot but now is more hit-or-miss. It's particularly bad now on weekend afternoons; late morning is better. Weekdays don't seem as bad either. There are also a handful of room-wrecking straights who seem to be here all the time and spend too much time in the steamroom/sauna.


Posted Mar 23 2008:
I can confirm the troll reports. There seems to be some secret troll society whose leader has encouraged all of its members to embed themselves firmly in this club's steamroom and scare away hot dudes. They are aggressive cock-blockers with a vengeance.


Posted Mar 19 2008:
The old trolls are still there and their numbers are increasing. Go to the one on West 73rd Street instead and there's plenty of hot guys looking for action. Most action on weekends after 1 pm.


Posted May 11 2007:
The trolls have taken over and they will chase you around hoping for a glimpse of non-troll dick. Eventually they will get tired of looking at each other and move onto another club and the hotties can have it back for a while.


Posted Apr 15 2007:
I've had some of the hottest group jackoff/suck sessions of my life here. However, recently the place has been invaded by pushy older trolls who are not discreet. One of them nearly got me caught the other day. I probably won't go back. People need to learn how to just enjoy the show and not try to jump in where they're not welcome.


Posted Oct 26 2006:
Both the sauna and steamroom are active and attract a wide variety of ethnic types and ages. There's something for everyone.
