Gym Shoot in New York City


(Pablo Andreu) #1

Does anyone know gyms that are open to shoots in the New York area without charging an arm and a leg? I had one on the hook, but they just backed out on me.

Looking to shoot in August.

Any options would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried the NYC Parks and Recreation Department? They run a bunch of gyms in the city. Some are better-looking than others (don’t know what kind of vibe you’re going for).

I’ve had good luck with these guys getting permission to shoot in most parks; they want to help out and they don’t charge much (except for Central Park it’s more of a “suggested donation” thing).

I haven’t tried this. Thanks so much, Arthur! I’ll let you know how it goes.
