I was originally intending to send this as a private message to Erik2003, but it turns out I can't do that until I have 15 posts.
Given that, I'll just ask the whole forum:
I am moving away from my beloved training dungeon in Florida with its sleds, earth-mover tires, kettlebells, and power racks with rubber bands to the Park Slope section of Brooklyn. The power-lifting scene there looks pretty grim; any info you can share would be greatly appreciated.
I saw a post by Erik2003 where he mentioned training at a place near Grand Army Plaza, but not the name of the place.
5th Avenue Gym appears to have a good reputation in this community, but I haven't had a chance to visit it yet. I would link to it, but I need 10 posts to do that. Hah.
