Soldiers’, Sailors’, Marines’, and Airmen’s Club

This morning, there was an underground explosion at 39th Street and Lexington Avenue. Not a big one, but enough to remind people of last year’s steampipe explosion. They evacuated four buildings, at least temporarily.

But it did remind me that I was in the area a few days ago and took a few pictures of one of the local institutions: The Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, and Airmen’s Club at 37th Street and Lexington Avenue.

I really like their plaques.  Below are two that I grabbed photos of.

The plaque below says that it is open to veterans of all US forces and its allies.

It’s a pretty nice looking place in a good location, but I haven’t been inside.  My family served, not me…
