Thanks in advance!

Upper east side is asphalt green which I think is $35 for a day pass. Pretty decent facilities and depending on the schedule sometimes a 50m pool.

Upper west side there is the JCC which if you go into membership office they would probably give you a 3 day pass if you pretend like you live here and want to join. 25m pool, only 5(?) lanes and generally pretty slow but if you don't go at a peak time you will be fine. (I might even have a guest pass laying around somewhere if you want it)

Others will probably have some more detailed suggestions, I think there are some masters practices that you can drop-in at Baruch.


No idea if this is a private club but it is much closer to you. Always been curious about it. http://www.clubcorp.com/...able-Center/Swimming


Edit: Also forgot about the Equinox on Columbus and 67th- pretty nice saltwater pool. Might be able to buy a day pass but could also get a free day if you act like you want to join.

Give this App a go, POPIN, specifically for NYC area at the moment. "Pay as you go" type model, hopefully it takes of nationally and then world wide as it would be nice for those of us that are always travelling! : https://itunes.apple.com/...ORKvQ02y4gbrjUwo3Isg

West Side YMCA, You can download a free guest pass on their website. The pool is quite nice. Just make sure to bring a cap.

Wow great find, I seriously hope they expand beyond NYC, or get some options in the UWS. That would be extremely helpful since I am on the road 75% of the time and thus get pretty terrible value from my gym/pool membership.

The Clubcorp is a regular gym, i think they have day passes. Its probably the only usable 25ft pool around that area. it has variable depth so you can turn on one side but not on the other.

NYC is on a bunch of islands, surrounded by water, you know!

Seriously: good luck to your girlfriend, the weather looks like going to be perfect.

I'm doing the marathon as well.

Finding a place to workout or swim while traveling is always a pain. We have developed and app that allows you access to our network clubs and you can pay by the minute. Average cost is 20 cents per minute or $12 per hour. Much better than paying the Day Pass Fee of $25-$50.
If you are in NYC and want to workout we have a create a Promo Code: NYCMarathon that will give you 20% Off your session. Just download the app and enter the code.
Feel free to share with your friends.
