4. Vintage Pool at YMCA

The West Side YMCA was once a dormitory for students attending the McBurney School, a preparatory institution that inspired the plot of J.D. Salinger’s masterpiece The Catcher in the Rye. The unique facade features grotesques and other figures.

Inside there is a vintage pool that has blue tiling and an upper level balcony as well as as a basketball court. The YMCA also offers affordable accommodations for travelers.
