I remember living in LA and paying 40/mo for a way nicer gym than my NYSC here (at 89/month). If you just need something basic (weights/cardio) it looks like Fordham's fitness joint might do the trick. I'm actually going to see if I can head over next week and scope it out. My concern isn't really about the equipment but rather whether or not it gets inundated with people at a certain time. Even at my gym I have to wait for a damn cardio machine if I go right after work and it blows.

Oh crunch. It's got to be the most overpriced gym I've seen to date in NYC. Speaking of overpriced gyms, Fordham recommends to e-mail Equinox about their student discount. I'm guessing it brings the price down to 150/month or something.
FWIW, I have a friend who works out at the Columbus Hill NYSC and they've given very good ratings--say the facilities are good, it's roomy with a lot of machines and studios, and it never gets that busy. Likewise, I've been pretty satisfied with my NYSC membership to date, the facilities are really nice, there's a sauna, personal tvs at the machines, and it usually isn't that busy except for 6-8 pm. If Fordham's facilities suck then I plan on keeping this.
