Description: In 2006 the Houston Street Center opened its doors, quickly becoming a Lower East Side hotspot. With state-of-the-art recreational and educational facilities, including a cardio center, gymnasium and competition-sized swimming pool, the Center is co-owned and co-operated by the Chinatown YMCA and University Settlement. From swimming and fitness programs, to dynamic after-school and older adult programs, to free community events, this 44,000 square- foot center provides services for people of all ages. For the thousands who use our facility, the Houston Street Center has been the home of new ideas, inspiring events, new experiences and just plain fun.
