Who Needs Whole Foods: Avalon Chrystie YMCA Ready to Open

Residents of the Avalon Chrystie may have to wait for their organic fruits and veggies but at least they will be able to go for a swim. The Villager reports that the YMCA and community center in the building is set to open March 1:

Under the plan crafted for the Cooper Square Urban Renewal site, the project had to include a community center, which AvalonBay Communities, the building’s developer, built and fully equipped at a cost of $14 million, then gave outright to the settlement house and YMCA, which will jointly own the space. It may not be Whole Foods, but it should give the residents of the Avalon a reason to happy. Actually, who are we kidding, they'll probably find something to complain about.
