I am surprised the Crapper hasn't complained about this building.......it's too big, too tacky with the ethnic style white trim, and possible SUV parked in the rear.

This building is a NYC landmark called the Officers Club, now home to the Bayside Historical Society.

If you lived in Queens, maybe you'd recognize it.

Ten Hut! This building has patriotic significance! It is the symbol of the US Army Corps of Engineers.

First poster.....did you serve your country?

This building....the Officers' Club....is not far from the Ernie Pyle Army Reserve Center!

A lot of troops who were deployed to Iraq have shipped out from the E.P.A.R.C.. Some have never returned!
