The sauna and steam room are always active. If there’s a guy in there, nine times out of ten he wants to play. The open showers are definitely a plus. Love this place, it's so hot. They have day passes but I just joined the gym. Way better than Vanderbilt.

This place is where it’s at! So many hot naked dudes in open showers. A lot of open shower play.

Disregard the old creepy men and you can find a cutie for sure. Go early in the morning or after 3:30 pm. They close the steam room for cleaning from 2:30 pm - 3 pm. My new favorite spot. ;)

I love this locker room. Exhibitionist heaven. I have a hard-on the whole time I'm here. I hooked up with a young hot guy in the steam room.

The open showers are such a plus and you can definitely hook up in the lockers section. So so hot!

Some old trolls but a great cruising spot nonetheless. Nine out of ten times you get lucky.

Cruising in the sense of looking at a mix of guys showering, in that sense it is cruisy. However if you are under 80 and in decent shape and you go in the afternoon seniors will surround you like cockroaches at a buffet.

The showers are totally open and allow no privacy. A great place for exhibitionist fun. It is possible to hookup with a hot guy who is staying upstairs in the rooms (usually Europeans). Yes, there are alot of old trolls, but there are also younger guys and open stroking in the showers and steam and sauna. If you are clever in what area you choose for your locker there is also spots for sucking and stroking in the locker room.

A few hot men on the workout floor but the shower and steamroom are filled with territorial overweight men who have skipped the workout and run straight to the steamroom. They don't know when to leave the party so hot hookups are next to impossible. Better to meet men in the free weight area and go somewhere else.

Security is very alert. Lots of straight men there making homophobic remarks. Not a good idea to cruise anywhere in the building.

Heads Up!
I was caught getting my cock sucked. The attendant threatened to call security but gave us a warning. Lots of cruising but the layout makes it unsafe.


Posted Apr 19 2005:
It's true that the locker rooms are very cruisy because the showers are two totally open rooms. There are no stalls. Great place for exhibitionist activities! I've put on several shows in the showers and had several blowjobs in the steam room. Of course, one has to be discreet but this place generally rocks even though the crowd tends to be ancient at times.

This place is a haven for cruising. There's no actual action, because there are usually kids around and attendants patrolling the locker rooms, but it's not too hard to meet guys here and take the action somewhere else.
