You are talking about bathhouses I guess??
So they got mostly closed down in the 1980s. I guess there are like TWO left and one is East Side Club on 227 E 56th St. Those days are over as it is all GRINDR now. Could be i am just out of touch back-woods guy now, so some native New Yorker might know more up to date.

Good luck and play safe, dude.

New York bathhouses were notorious in the day. I think the clampdown came after the Reagan-era hysteria over AIDS. sure you are right about the action being online now, still don't think an app can replace the atmosphere of those days! l have been to a few saunas in Europe and it is just not the same. Lot of fat old queens and muscle bunnies preening themselves. Bring back the good old days! I was in New York in the 90s and there was one that I remember as amazing, but darn if i can recall the name. I was thinking about other stuff and forgot my kodak They used to sell poppers at the door (under the counter i think) but one had a glass case lined with popper bottles, lube, and condoms. I believe in yesterday.

Cruising died with Grindr. There used to be a great guide called Spartacus published in Berlin which listed all the bars / saunas and facilities worldwide. One thing that used to make me laugh was AYOR or at your own risk... the kind of dive bars where you could get in trouble. Having said that I ended up with a black eye once in Marseilles...so they were right! But these apps can be more dangerous, as you never really know who the guy is. In a bar you can use your common sense, right?
Agh and one other thing the crazy names back then...there was a sauna in Switzerland called Mr Mustache. Never went, but I always wondered if it was full of Swiss guys sporting hipster style waxed taches. I think gay life is not so great nowadays, despite the more liberal attitudes.
