Manhatten has a gun range? It's hidden but it's there

Resource: http://theweek.com/article/index/255963/home-on-the-range-with-new-yorks-gun-owners
The only public shooting range in Manhattan is tucked away in the basement of a commercial building at 20 West 20th Street. With such heavy gun control laws I find it interesting that they would allow one but here it is.

Quoted: The clientele is heavy on cops, but includes a wide variety of locals who share a passion for target shooting, with members numbering around 3,500 in total. (Travis Bickle, Robert DeNiro's character in Taxi Driver, also practiced there in the film.)
The range, which opened in 1964, is necessary, said Leung, because licensed gun owners need a convenient place to shoot in the city. But still, the police run the show, and can take back anyone's firearm for any reason.
