JCC Manhattan - The Jewish Community Center

JCC Manhattan The Jewish Community Center

What doesn’t this place have? The JCC is an Upper West Side Mecca for young and old, families and singles. Where do I begin…

Let’s start with their amazing full service gym, modeled after the well known Equinox. This state of the art gym has trainers, massage therapists, machines, free weights, classes, and much more. The JCC also has an Olympic size pool for class and laps, and has an adjustable depth pool for children swimming lessons and for anyone with special needs.

For singles, the JCC is perfect place to meet other singles with evening and weekend events. Not to mention all the classes and other programs they offer for singles during the year.

For families, there is no better place in all of Manhattan. They have programs for children and teens of all ages such as music classes for babies and basketball leagues for teens; they have classes for new parents; they offer many different programs such as mommy and me classes, prenatal yoga, and young family Friday night dinners. They even have drop off daycare and babysitting for any parent in a bind or just wants a few hours to themselves at the gym. There is even a JCC pre-school that is so popular; it takes months to get your child enrolled. I recommend applying ASAP.

For senior citizens, there are specially designed programs and outings for all occasions.

Housed in a beautiful building built in 2002, the JCC is a one stop shop. It is a bit costly to be a fitness member but it is well worth it, if you take advantage. It gives you access to the gym, the pool and the basketball courts, and a gives you a discount on all the classes and programs given at or through the JCC.

Enjoy it!
