The owner is seeking $5,000 to help offset the cost of damages
Harlem Cycle, a Black-owned workout studio in Harlem, was vandalized over on the weekend.
The owner, Tammeca Rochester, was at a loss for words when she found out. The gym was already facing mounting pressure from the pandemic.
“On Sunday, Oct. 18, 2020 I received a call noting me that our studio had been vandalized. As I arrived to our location I was met with the police who informed me of a break-in and the glass in our our front door completely shattered,” Rochester said.
I'm slowly loosing my faith ….. Woke up this morning and Harlem Cycle has been vandalized. In my 5 years at this location I've never worried about theft because I believe when you take care of the community they will take care of you. Well today I'm feeling quite let down and heart broken. 8+ months of business closure, broken pipes, constantly pivoting our business, creating a whole new digital business, not knowing if we will ever be able to hold classes again and now this. I'm so f*ing tired.
