Still offering the steam and sweat since 1892, these health spas are alive and well in New York where people get stretched, steamed and pounded as they relax and renew themselves.

Spent hours here shvitzing and shmoozing with the regulars- ladies day on a Boris week. If you're looking for clean, plush, services, security, deferential service people, fuggetaboutit. But if the thought of smearing yourself with mud, drying off naked in the sun on a rooftop,...More

They are not clear with the rules, don't buy it from groupon because they do not acept it. They cheated me. The place looks horrible and dirty.

Not quite, but the Russian and Turkish Baths are a close approximation. Check your good judgement and your modesty in the safety deposit box with your watch and wallet, and in return you'll get a couple keys on a rubber band. The promised towels and...More

There is nothing fancy about the Russian Baths, very much a collection of steam rooms and plunge pools, basic changing rooms and a Russian eatery to the front with a roof terrace. I really appreciated its old school charm, the characters I met there, and...More

I've been going to the Baths for 25 years. On the plus side, you won't find an old-school Russian/Turkish bath like this in New York. It's a great spot to have great Ukranian food, see a cross-section of New York life, decompress and "sweat your...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
