History

       The North Albany Post was formed in late 1946 by a number of individuals returning from their military service. The original idea was to name the Post after one the local heroes that had made the supreme sacrifice.  With 17 casualties from the neighborhood, which one do you choose?  Logic finally prevailed and the new club was named for the neighborhood with plaques honoring the war dead. We now display several memorial plaques honoring the war dead of all the wars since our inception. We also have a memorial board remembering the names of our departed members.

 

Location/Hours

       Our club is open Tuesday through Sunday from 2:00 p.m. and from 12 noon on the weekends. Closing is usually in the very late evening except on the weekends when hours are extended. You are most welcome to stop in, say hello, stay for a chat. During the week there are usually 3 or 4 members attending to office duties from 10:00 a.m. to noon or longer and the coffee pot is usually on, or can be very quickly.

 

       We are located on North First St., which is adjacent to I-90 where it crosses Broadway and North Pearl St. Coming from Memorial Hospital area, take a left on Van Rensselaer Blvd. and a right on North First St.  You can’t miss us.
