A reader posted the following today. Can anyone confirm this? I found something about a Harlem World Sports Club (harlemworldsportsclub.com) [note: link is defunct] that was slated to open two years ago in the new 1400 on Fifth building.
I just learned that another NYSC club will open this summer at 115th and 5th. It was supposed to be the site of the “Harlem Sports Club”, but I guess that fell through.
Our astute readers jumped right on this one. See response below:
Harlem World Sports Club was to have opened in 1400 on 5th in 2004. The company marketed memberships but never got its financing together and folded.
NYSC has expressed interest in opening in the space designated for Harlem World. They have neither started building the space nor signed a lease. Should they move forward they will not be opening until this time next year.
