The principals of CityView Racquet Club recognized the issue of increased residential and commercial construction taking the place of New York City’s few tennis courts. In the hopes of keeping tennis alive in the greatest city in the world, the hunt began for a location that would be safe from real estate takeover. Instead of looking for land to expand out, the CityView team looked up. CityView Racquet Club is built fifty feet in the air atop the iconic Swingline stapler in Long Island City.
CityView opened “a country club in the sky” on April 18, 2008 and is one of a kind.
