mission is to promote the general welfare of the men and women of the
Armed Forces of the United States, it's Allies and their families, by
maintaining and offering club and lodging rooms in it's 19th century
brownstone located on Lexington Avenue. Since 2004, the facilities of
SSMAC have also been made available to members and dependents of the
Police Department, Fire Department and Emergency Medical Services.
