Brooklyn Boulders Largest Rock Climbing Gym Will Open in Bushwick
For the active rock climbers of NYC, this new gym will be bigger and better than the other Brooklyn Boulders locations around the city. According to a recent report by Crain’s, negotiations for the 35,000-square-foot indoor-climbing facility are in the works for the Bushwick space on 121 Morgan Avenue.

The third, and largest, Brooklyn Boulders location will feature a rock climbing wall of about 40-feet or more. However, this will only be possible if they are allowed by their landlord to raise the roof from its current height of 20-feet. The company’s two other locations — in Gowanus and Long Island City — have rock climbing walls that reach only 30-feet high.

Brooklyn Boulders’ president and co-founder, Lance Pinn, told Crain’s that the decision to put this huge new facility in Bushwick was partially motivated by the fact that the L train will be shutting down in 2019. He said:

“People won’t move away because of the shutdown. So the thought is [that] more of them will stay in town to work and play.”
