American Legion


Founded in 1919, American Legion Post 754, a charter member of the American Legion, is a fraternal organization of 225 current and former U.S. armed forces personnel and friends who enjoy military history and camaraderie. Home for the Post is the 12th floor Legion Room which is decorated with assorted military memorabilia, and where members regularly gather for dinner and drinks. The Legion commemorates their comrades with services and events each year at the Club on Veterans' Day and Memorial Day. It also establishes and maintains the Club's service memorials (the lobby's wall plaque and the magnificent 9th floor stained glass window) and participates in and supports numerous other armed forces events. Every year the Legion nominates an outstanding young man and woman to represent them in the celebrated American Legion Boys and Girls State Programs in New York State, an event founded by 1919 returning World War I veterans.

Socially, the Club holds a holiday party and numerous social events.
