There should be an Equinox very close to you and they're dependable. I don't know what reciprocal arrangements they have with other clubs or what their day fees are, but they tend to be good gyms. For the thoroughly gay experience check out David Barton Gym on 7th and w23rd. And for a small, clean, affordable gym there's Steel Gym on w23rd between 6th and 7th. Of course, it's not too difficult to jump on the subway to the low 50's and go to Gold's either. And for the total athletic experience, there are the Chelsea Piers. You can do everything there.
