It's Fun to Gut the YMCA

New, 1 comment

Whatever happened to the 7,000-square-foot apartment created out of the top floors of 23rd Street's old McBurney YMCA? A hotel heiress spent around $7 million on the place in 2007, shortly after it was officially listed for sale. But, sadly, she promptly gutted it. Curbed National has a fun rundown of the things the space was used for before the heiress had her way with it: a party filmed for Drew Barrymore's film Music and Lyrics, a set for the pilot of Ugly Betty, and assorted catalog and magazine shoots.
