Town Sports filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy [on Sept. 14] after facing debt coming due this fall as well as reduced cash flow and liquidity due to coronavirus-related closures.
Company executives need access to capital “so they can reopen the gyms with appropriate health and safety improvements, and comply with relevant consumer protection laws and obligations,” said Nicole Greenblatt, a lawyer representing Town Sports, during the court hearing.
After its bankruptcy filing, Town Sports sought to reassure its roughly 600,000 members that it wasn’t going out of business through postings on its gym brands’ websites.The company has requested to give back 22 location leases to its landlords and potentially reject 13 more locations, depending on lease negotiations.
This past spring, NYSC members were angry that the club was still charging them membership fees despite the COVID-19 closure. Town Sports did eventually offer refunds.
Gov. Cuomo allowed gyms to reopen with limited capacity in the city on Aug. 24.
In other local gym news, Ludlow Fitness on Delancey will not be reopening.
Chickpea was the last tenant at 210 E. 14th St., closing in April 2018.

After nearly seven months watching over Third Avenue, the four-story ad for "My Spy" has been removed from the AMC Village 7 at 11th Street...The ad arrived in late February to woo potential moviegoers to see the family-friendly action comedy starring Dave Bautista... which was set to open on March 13, but never made it into a theater with the COVID-19 crisis.
May Bautista continue to watch over us all, amen 🙏— This Isn't Michael (@micheil) September 26, 2020
Theaters remain closed in the city. However, there has been activity inside this AMC outpost of late.

While my family and I were playing tag in the baseball field along the FDR, we came across a pile of about 12-14 syringes scattered in the dugout. We called 311 and they didn't give us much confidence that they would clean that up. I am horrified. We need to make people aware that this is happening in places where children play and that 311 isn't terribly concerned.

Early this morning, State Sen. Brad Hoylman spotted this moving truck with anti-Semitic graffiti parked on First Avenue between Third Street and Fourth Street.
"Hate is not welcome in our district, in Manhattan, or in any other part of our city," Hoylman said in a statement. "The perpetrators of this attack must be caught and held accountable. Close to 40,000 Jewish Holocaust survivors live in New York City. It hurts my heart to think that the many people who found refuge in America are still being targeted by this hateful ideology."
Just saw this on the west side of 1st Avenue between 2nd and 3rd streets. Sickening. The perpetrators must be found and held accountable.— Senator Brad Hoylman (@bradhoylman) September 25, 2020
