The YMCA left downtown nearly a decade ago.
But it still lives, in its original home.
A large, heavy concrete sign — with the Y’s old, triangular logo — sits inside Anthropologie. The clothing/accessories/home furnishings store occupies the former Bedford Building, where the YMCA began here in 1923. (The benefactor’s name lives on, in the retail complex known as Bedford Square.)
That was an easy one. Ron Japha, Richard Hyman, Bonnie Strittmatter, Rick Benson, Andrew Colabella, Jeff Jacobs, Cathy Malkin, Beth Krane, Shirlee Gordon, Lynn Untermeyer Miller, Beth Berkowitz, Amy Schneider, Molly Alger, Bobbie Herman and Jonathan McClure all knew where (and “Y”) the big sign can be found.
