    Almost always basketball running, plenty of cardio machines and stretch areas. Lifting area feels cramped. Unusual amount of nudes in the male locker rule.

    During NYU's Club Fest it's insanely hot. No AC. Maybe that's why it's being demolished in October 2015.

    As the main athletic facility of NYU, Coles houses giant swimming pools, courts, fitness rooms, and a rock climbing wall. Neighbors in the area can gain access as a “Community Member.”

    The weight room area would be much better if there were more adjustable benches and if the dumbbells went up to 120lbs. Currently there is only one adjustable bench for the entire gym!
