Brooklyn YMCA to close

(Plain Press, October 2006) On September 30,  2006 the Brooklyn YMCA on Pearl Road just south of Denison will close its doors for good. The Brooklyn YMCA provided programming for neighborhood youths, a workout facility for local YMCA members and a low cost residence for low-income individuals. In recent years the Greater Cleveland YMCA has closed a number of inner city YMCA’s, while at the same time expanding facilities in the suburbs. The West Side YMCA at W. 32nd and Franklin closed in 2004.
