We are pleased to inform you that we are currently undergoing renovations of the 10th 11th Floors at the West Side Y. This renovation will include complete modernization of the bathrooms on both floors plus the corridors, including new lighting and new carpets. In addition, the guest room on those floors will undergo some basic cosmetic upgrades to complement the new bathrooms and hallways.
We anticipate the work to take approximately 10 weeks and should be completed by July 15, 2013. We are sorry for any inconvenience you may experience but believe the end result will be well worth the wait.
At the present time, we do have signs placed throughout the building regarding the work being done. Please be advised that we will take every precaution to insure your comfort during this period.
