On November 1, approximately 8,000 active members of 24 Hour Fitness located in Little Neck received a letter that the club at 245-24 Horace Harding Expressway would abruptly close at the end of the month.
The members do not now why there would be corporate downsizing of a facility that has been there 40 years or more.
This club is enjoyed mostly by residents of Flushing, East Flushing, Aubundale, Bayside, Oakland Gardens, Little Neck, Douglaston, Whitestone, Glen Oaks, Fresh Meadows and College Point,
In Nassau County, many residents of Great Neck and Floral Park also use this facility.
24 Hour Fitness is the only club in Queens with a swimming pool. They said we will be able to use their other club, which has a pool, located in Valley Stream.
This will inconvenience many people who do not have a car and enjoyed the swimming pool and the gym. It will surely hurt many senior citizens who use the Little Neck club.
