Neighbor Beefs

New, 4 comments

Fitness junkies have fallen in love with the CrossFit craze, but many New Yorkers—especially those that find themselves living next to the gyms—have not. Apparently having your neighbor repeatedly drop 300-pound weights is not enjoyable. Park Slopers rallied against a gym on Fifth Avenue, and residents in Chelsea are fighting a noisy outpost at 257 West 17th Street. They say that the workouts not only send "shock waves through surrounding apartments," but that the gym has been operating illegally. [DNAinfo; previously]
