Speaking of 13th Street

I had no idea that Crunch closed this location between University and Broadway. I was told it happened in early March.

Yeah, I noticed this as well. Before I had kids (and gave up staying in shape), I was a member here.

Guess it makes sense -- there's that newish (a few years back) Crunch on 4th avenue and 12th street?

there's also a crunch down on Lafayette near 4th street. guess they're consolidating with no money around.

I was member there, too, when I was working at Grove/Atlantic -- 841 Broadway. It was around $500 something dollars for a year, with the Grove discount. Yeah, didn't know that that location closed.

I remember the hamster-wheel treadmill that Crunch once put in that front window! I love to work out too, but ... erm, privacy please. :p

I'm worried a little bit about Jeniette, the spa/salon a few doors down from this closed Crunch. Jeniette (named for its lovely owner, who is still there almost every day) is a wonderful, friendly and unpretentious place that has been there since 1984. There's been a bit of a downturn in customers because of the recession, but is a great neighborhood salon, so I hope they will be able to ride the tough times out.
