Touting up to 250 pound dumbbells for some of Brooklyn’s strongest men & women, Richie’s gym has become a cornerstone of Bushwick. After first opening its doors in the mid-90’s, it became a safe haven where people found refuge from the burned down buildings and drug riddled, violent streets. Now, in the midst of a rapidly gentrifying neighborhood, Richie’s is one of the last true gyms and fighting to survive.
