Is This Your Business?
 

There are 2 LIGHTS in the Steam Sauna. The rear light is out 1/2 the time. When it is OFF the party is ON.
Crowd: Abercrombie looking White Boys, Str8 but Curious Boys who like to watch but give em some time to be part of it. Plenty of LATINS & other RACES for your pleasure.
Facilities: There is NO huge Bally sign so you gotta look for #45 next to Duane Reade or you'll walk right past it and not even know it. It happened to me the 1st time.

  • When I went last Tuesday the steamroom was closed again, does anyone know if it's permanent or just that day it was closed?

  • The sting operation that I have read about at other Bally locations is extremely obvious here as well. Using a Guest Pass recently I witnessed the same BS that existed 6 years ago. A staff member frequents the Steam or Sauna wearing Boxer shorts especially since many others are not wearing anything except a towel. This staff member frequently walks in and out of either of these rooms spending only a minute in either and looks suspiciously at everyone that is in there and if there is any action going on, a staff member would come in minutes later telling anyone that is participating that they are to get dressed and come to the Manager�s office. This happened 6 years ago and amazingly 2 weeks ago the same thing occurred. I thought that it was also a coincidence that the membership rep that had approved my 1 week pass was within the Sauna room with a towel covering his shorts during one of the days that I was using the gym investigating everyone�s activity. I left after he came into the room and dressed and never returned during the time that my Guest Pass was valid. Very sneaky guys but not sneaky enough to catch me!

  • this place is always filled with the same fat, old, hairy back, diseased lookin dudes, who don't take hints and follow you everywhere. very rarely does a hot dude show up. but if that's what your into this gym is perfect for you.
