The “Old” Downtown YMCA

I say old, because back in October this building, which opened over 65 years ago, closed its doors, giving way to the opening of the brand new Tellepsen Family YMCA just two blocks away.

Eventually, this building will be razed, so I thought a last quick glimpse was warranted, even if this picture was snapped in August before it closed.

It won’t be completely forgotten though, as its original cornerstone is displayed in the new lobby and the original “Y” sign that used to rest atop this building now hangs over the new fourth floor workout area.
