Solidcore Gym Takes over Former ICP Space on the Bowery

Posted on: March 10th, 2020 at 5:09 am by

With the International Center of Photography long gone from the Bowery and living large at Essex Crossing, its former headquarters is now a gym. Well, part of it.

The gargantuan ground floor of 250 Bowery was divided to create a new gym called Solidcore. Signage for the establishment went up at the end of last month. Its opening heralds the seventh Manhattan location for the national chain.

Solidcore offers a “high intensity” workout…

We maximize results by overloading and breaking down your muscle fibers, then giving them time to recover and adapt. By using rotating monthly muscle focuses it prevents plateaus and delivers balanced bodies. You will see 2X the results you would from working out without this method. Our rotating monthly muscle focus will help you build long, lean muscles that will frame your physique and increase your metabolism.

The International Center of Photography is now open at Essex Crossing.

Meanwhile, this midsection of the Bowery is now a mini-Mecca for gyms. As condos rise around us, these are the businesses that follow.

Woom Center Yoga, 274 Bowery
Pop Physique, 270 Bowery
New York Pilates, 262 Bowery
Chinatown YMCA, 273 Bowery
Modelfit, 212 Bowery
Mark Fisher Fitness, 161 Bowery
