For more than 90 years, the Boys & Girls Club of New Rochelle has nurtured academic success, healthy lifestyles, and good citizenship for every young person who walks through its doors, while serving as a vital partner to the City government and School District. This invaluable community resource is about to embark on an exciting new chapter, with the opening this September of a state-of-the-art Remington Clubhouse.
The new Remington is the most significant youth development facility built in New Rochelle in two generations and a cornerstone of the larger revival of Lincoln Park and the Lincoln Avenue neighborhood. Nearly twice the size of the old building, it will allow the club to serve more than 700 members and significantly expand its positive impact. Local kids and teens will benefit from a nurturing, safe environment equipped with learning centers, a gym, basketball court, music/podcast studio, teen room/lounge, STEAM room, cafeteria, and more.
Construction of the new clubhouse was funded primarily through a development agreement encompassing nearby housing, and the Club’s leadership has successfully pursued both private and public contributions, including City support. Even so, the Club still aims to raise an additional $1 million this year to equip and open the clubhouse on time, plus an additional $4 million during the next several years to provide for future programming and maintenance and Remington, and for the Club’s growth overall.
Please consider investing in Remington and in a stronger New Rochelle for us all. Learn more at https://bgcnr.org/the-new-remington-building/.
