The Beverly Hills YMCA used to be located at 9930 Santa Monica Blvd., Beverly Hills, CA 90212. It is now the JEM Center at http://www.jemcenter.com The building was built in 1950 and is 27,833 on a 24,003 sf lot.It last sold for $6,500,000 in December 2005. It's currently owned by BSD Properties in Santa Fe Springs, California.

The photo above is from the JEM Center who currently leases it beginning in 2003. When YMCA was at the site 2/3 of the people who went to the Y were not Christian but Jewish. The new Center is Jewish.

I went to the Y with my sister after school from 1972-78. Dara Torres hung out with me there after school. Ricardo Montalbon from "Fantasy Island" used to swim there during senior swim which was after swim team. Buddy Ebson from "The Beverly Hillbillies" also went there. Ben Stiller and his friends used to play basketball there. John Eikrem was the Director when I was there. He had two kids my same age.

John Eikrem used to be the Director. The Y started having some issues in 1988 because of the "C" in YMCA. Here's an article. For those who don't know Beverly Hills is/was mainly Jewish.

There was talk that the YMCA might rescind BH YMCA license because of supposed needed repairs. Time and time again people complain about the BH Y when one of their board members is up for re-election for BH Council.
