Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The best part of our trip to New York apart from the Taylor Serrano fight was crossing over Brooklyn Bridge and visiting Gleasons gym. The welcome and kindness we received there was fantastic and meeting the Coach and Boxing historian Hector Rocca was an amazing experience. The man is a mine of knowledge and an absolute Gentleman as well giving us his time and expertise on both the Saturday and Sunday. This was an absolute pleasure and highly appreciated and recommended.

I had to visit this place myself as i have my own Boxing gym in the UK. It is well equipprd and has that worn in feel that old style Boxing gyms have. It had a friendlier more welcoming feel also and it wasnt a daunting task walking through yhe front door. A must visit for people who train in and around Boxing circles.

Even if you are not interested in Boxing, but especially if you are interested in a real Boxing Gym you will not want to miss going to Gleason's Gym. These are the best, kindest and most extraordinary people ever - from Jeanette on the front desk who couldn't have been nicer to us - she made us feel like family - to the champion trainers Hector Roca and Leon "Cat" Taylor as well as Queen Ronica Jeffrey, Feather Weight World Champion who actually talked with us and took pics with us. We enjoyed our visit to the gym it was like being home. Everybody treated us so good we didn't want to leave. Also check out the history of this gym it is as extraordinary as the people you meet there. Gleason's Gym is so much more then a Boxing Gym they have all kinds of programs for families as well as persons with Parkinson's they are interested in people being the best they can be no matter where they are in their life.

Walked past Gleason's on our way to get hot chocolate down the street. Recognized the name from the 70s, didn't know it had moved to Brooklyn. Stopped in and were delighted with the friendly staff inviting us to look around. Great history and memorabilia. Loved it.
