History


An historic club looking toward the future. Traditional values, a charming gentility and amenities of the 21st Century.

Founded in 1868, the New York Athletic Club boasts a unique history. The Club's founding premise was to bring structure to a sporting environment that was lacking in organization and uniformity of measurement. Quickly, the NYAC organized the first US championships in boxing, swimming, wrestling and track & field.

Today, our New York City clubhouse stands in tribute to an unmatched athletic history and our ongoing commitment to the pursuit of sporting excellence, while also providing unmatched social opportunities for its members. 

Welcome to our home and our traditions.
