This massive waterfront sports center caters to the athlete in everyone. You can hit a bucket of golf balls at the four-level driving range, skate on an indoor ice rink or rack up strikes in a jazzy bowling alley. There's basketball at Hoop City, a sailing school for kids, batting cages, a huge gym and covered swimming pool and indoor rock climbing.

A passport, which provides a day pass to the gym and pool, as well as discounts on several other activities, can be purchased for $60. A few snack bars serve sandwiches and pizzas so you can carb-load after your workout. Though the complex is somewhat cut off by the busy West Side Hwy (Eleventh Ave), the wide array of attractions here brings in the crowds; the M23 crosstown bus, which stops right at the main entrance, saves you the long, four-avenue trek from the subway. There is also a taxi stand outside, although during nonpeak hours the line of cabs is fairly short.
