Northeast Bronx YMCA

Marvel and the YMCA's newest facility in the Northeast Bronx is a project decades in the making. Community activists and politicians have been working together for thirty years to create this focal point for the entire neighborhood—a space that would allow all ages to gather, learn, and play. Located alongside NYCHA’s Baychester and Edenwald Houses, this new dynamic YMCA campus took extensive inspiration from the site's original forested land. A glass corridor seamlessly connects the three main pavilions, which are all situated around a central courtyard, celebrating the existing one hundred year old trees that enhance this unique building in a natural gesture. The YMCA building also includes two swimming pools, a 7,200 square foot dividable gymnasium, wellness center, teaching kitchen, rooftop garden, childcare, group exercise studios, and sub-dividable community and multipurpose rooms.
