UPDATE: Our new space at 44 W. 28th St., 2nd floor, is now useable again starting tonight. If you’re signed up for a Beginners’ Class, Elements Class, or Post-Elements Class that’s scheduled for that new space, please go there, not 25 W. 26th Street. Thanks for your patience!
IMPORTANT NOTICE! Because of painting going on at 28 Street, we may need to combine all classes at 25 West 26 Street tomorrow night. We did not see this coming. (This is fireproof paint being applied to the structural columns by the landlord, not something we scheduled ourselves). Therefore, it may be extremely crowded at 26 Street tonight. We are not certain, but this is what happened last night. We will keep you posted as we figure this out. Thanks for your patience.

From member Greg W.: “This past Wednesday I ran up the Empire State Building to raise money for the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation. 86 Stories / 1576 stairs. 17:37 was my time. It was an amazing experience….By the way, I will run those stairs vs. doing “FRAN” any day of the week. The Empire State Building is a walk in the park compared to some of the madness we get up to at the box. LOL.”
And on this Valentine’s Day…a big, romantic congratulations to Coach Eric for tying the knot with his girlfriend (and recent CFNYCer) Kim! Here they were on their honeymoon last week, soaking up the sun in Aruba:
