Signage for Crunch at the northern end of the Bowery appeared last summer, then disappeared, then reappeared again this winter. And now Bowery Boogie is saying that the two-level gym should be open the first week of June.
The outpost on Lafayette Street is making way for a 13-story hotel that'll have its entrance at 708 Broadway (The article explains that Crunch operates out of the back part of the building, hence the different address). That location will remain open as members transition to the new gym, though we don't know for how long.
