  1. It was 8 floors and had an elevator and was always packed on weekend evenings. Of course, it was more than a gym (as the ad suggests). It was a gay bathhouse and sex club in the late 70’s to early 80’s. It was very hot before Aids reared its ugly head ! They had cages to screw in, dark grope-rooms, private rooms, lockers, deluxe rooms and secluded and darkened areas to do everything and anything ! There was a guy named Paul and he lived on Leroy Street in the West Village and he was a short and hot Jew bottom that took me there one night in 1979. He later died of Aids and in 1987 the city shut down all the bathhouses.
