See Gone, but not forgotten

Monroe Family YMCA was a branch of the YMCA of Greater Rochester housed in an older building on Monroe Avenue next to the library, near I-490. There were a lot of activities in the building, despite it's small size, including a Montessori preschool, childcare, a pool, a weight room, a new Cardio Theatre, Aerobics, yoga and other classes.

The branch was closed along with a couple other locations about a year after the completion of the Schottland Family YMCA, citing the difficulties of chronic low attendance and the Covid/Post-Covid era.
The building ownership was transferred to the Center For Youth.

2011-08-29 14:35:22   Based on my needs for a gym membership for myself to get access to treadmills & weights this place is small but convenient if you live close-by. It is difficult to get a treadmill in the evening during the winter. Weight room is small but well maintained & usually not too overcrowded.

They do a lot of stuff for kids here & the staff in very nice and good with kids so if you're looking for stuff for your kids in the neighborhood check this place out.
