The Cliffs, a Long Island City climbing gym that opened briefly in October before it was shut down by the Department of Buildings, is finally back in business. For good this time—right?

Following its initial debut, the 30,000-square-foot space was promptly shuttered after just 25 days for failing to acquire proper, crucial sign-offs from the Department of Buildings, resulting in scary-sounding violations that called into question the facility's structural integrity. Owner Mike Wolfert insists that the violations amounted to nothing more than a missing signature, which nevertheless required the gym to undergo a thorough DOB audit. "They looked at every aspect of the facility to make sure it was safe," he said.

Wolfert was also accused at the time of bribing an undercover investigator posing as a DOB inspector in an attempt to have a stop-work order wiped away. He tells us the ordeal is still ongoing, but that he cannot elaborate on the charges. Fortunately for the gym and its future patrons, "personal allegations have nothing to do with the business," he told us.
