Out with the Old
This is the original YMCA in Columbus on 11th Avenue. The red brick structure in the right of the frame is the addition. I am not sure when that was added. On February 1, they will move into a new, state-of-the-art facility. A few years ago, I was teaching a Yoga in this building. April 1 was my first class. We were on the top floor at the back of the building in the exercise room. You had to navigate a maze of stairs and twisty hallways to get there. About 15 minutes into my first class, the power went out. The emergency lighting went out shortly after. Remember, this was my first class (on April Fools Day) and I was not familiar with the maze. We formed a conga line and headed down. I am sure how long it took us to get to the first floor. I guess the joke was on me. Did I hear you say flashlight? Happy Sunday.
