45. J. Rozier Hansborough Recreation Center
35 West 134th Street between Malcolm X Blvd. and Fifth Avenue (to the east on West 135th Street tucked behind Lenox Terrace)

This Parks Department bath house has one of the most beautiful indoor pools in the Northeast. Construction was begun in 1907 and completed in 1925. The pool area has a magnificent skylight and elegant mosaic tiles, making the aquatic experience very enriching. It was originally designed as Turkish baths which served those living in the neighborhood in homes lacking indoor plumbing. Typical of its time, it was a very popular gathering place. The center's award-winning, senior citizen synchronized swim team, the "Honey Bears," uses this magnificent pool for training and competition.
