Brooklyn Crew—the city's only indoor rowing studio where trainers act as your personal coxswains—is making its way across the East River from Williamsburg to Manhattan, according to Crain's New York. Founders Josh Ozeri and Rob Minucci are currently looking to open another outpost in Tribeca or Union Square: a venture that will cost upwards of $300,000.
"So many people have requested a location [in Manhattan]. Some of our clients commute from midtown, the West Village; even some Brooklyn clients [want a Manhattan option]," Gordon Ozeri, Josh's brother and publicist, told the website.
In case you were wondering how the partners plan to recoup the expense of purchasing a second studio space, let us remind you that drop-in classes at Brooklyn Crew are $38 a pop, making them one of the priciest in New York.
