The Victor and Monroe Ave. YMCAs are now permanently closed. The announcement was made Friday when company CEO George Romell, cited finical implications due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The Greater Rochester area has 17 YMCA branches, with more than 2,00 employees furloughed since April.
The Monroe Ave. YMCA has been a community landmark for almost a hundred years. If you’ve ever been in the upstairs part, you know it has a sublime view of downtown at night. The building will now be used by The Center for Youth around the end of September.
