The Rockaway YMCA has been a cornerstone of the neighborhood since it opened its doors in 2014. Our state-of-the-art facility houses much more than cardio and strength centers and the largest YMCA aquatic center in the five boroughs—it's home to a community of New Yorkers committed to helping you reach your goals.
