NBC 4 had this report:
Paperwork containing the personal information of clients at a shuttered David Barton Gym ... was found strewn across the heavily-trafficked streets in the area Thursday.
News 4 cameras exclusively captured photocopies of identification cards, passports and visa information that had apparently been submitted with gym waivers for the luxury fitness chain.
It wasn't immediately cleared who tossed all this sensitive information on the curb.
The four David Barton Gym locations in Manhattan, including on Astor Place, shut down without any warning to its members or staff in late December.
Last month, State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman filed a lawsuit against Club Ventures Investments LLC d/b/a David Barton Gyms.
The Astor Place space will become one of New York Sports Clubs' collection of Elite clubs.
