A note from New York Sports Clubs:

ALL NYSC members are granted Passport Privileges

Until we get back on our feet, all NYSC members have privileges to use any club, at any time, at no additional cost. 

Our doors are open to help anyone impacted by Hurricane Sandy.

All of our clubs are opening their doors to Hurricane Sandy victims allowing full use of our facilities. If you need to take a hot shower, charge your cell phone, or recharge your body with a stress-melting workout, our club is your club. Tell a friend. All we ask is that non-members bring a towel. In the wake of the storm, we’re committed to providing a safe workout environment for all of our members. We appreciate your patience while we restore our facilities to working order.

In addition, if you are having difficulty coping with the storm and its aftermath, we have trained, caring social workers available to help you. We provide assistance with FEMA applications and can help you navigate the other benefits and entitlements related to the storm. If you need non-perishable foods from our Kosher Food Pantry, please let us know by calling 516-569-6733, or stop in to our office at 207 Grove Avenue, Cedarhurst.
