BINGHAMTON, N.Y. — A Southern Tier business affected by the September flooding is not just re-open for business, they are building on.
Two feet of water destroyed all the exercise equipment and did extensive damage to the River Walk Athletic Club in Binghamton. Management restored the facility and bought new equipment and now they are adding more than 3,000 square feet the facility.
Developers say the flood provided them with an opportunity to re-create the gym and provide even better service to their clients.
“To take the things we’ve learned over our first year of operation at the gym and re-invent the gym. We didn’t just build it back the way it was, we’ve improved it and made modifications, you know, based upon what members told us what they thought would be better. So, you know, it’s taking lemons and making lemonade is basically what we’ve done here,” said Alan Weissman of Weissman Real Estate.
The added space will allow the club to have a dedicated aerobics room, as well as a spinning room.
