Metropolitan Postcard Club of New York City

Please Note: We are currently in the process of creating a brand new website for the club. Some basic information follows below, and feel free to contact President Michael Cassara at metropostcardclub@gmail.com with any questions. Our new site will be launching in coming weeks, and we are excited to share it with you.


THE METROPOLITAN POSTCARD CLUB OF NEW YORK CITY, formerly called the Metropolitan Post Card Collectors Club, is the oldest continuously run postcard club in the United States. Membership is made up of both collectors and dealers of postcards from coast-to-coast and many from foreign countries as well. Not only has the Club been facilitating the exchange of postcards since its founding in 1946, it is dedicated to furthering the understanding and practice of Deltiology -- the collection and study of picture postcards.

If you've not been to our new location, the 14th Street Y is very easy to get to by subway or bus (and there is plenty of free street parking if you drive):


By Subway: Take any of these trains to 14th Street (A, C, E, F, L, M, N, Q, R, W, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), then change to the Brooklyn-bound L train for a quick ride to the 1st Avenue Stop in Manhattan. (If you take the 1,2 or 3 train, you will walk through a passageway to the L train.)


The L train runs frequently and the 1st Avenue Stop is just across the street from the 14th Street Y.


By Bus: The 14th Street Crosstown Bus comes right to the Y.


By Car: Take 2nd Avenue downtown and turn left on 14th Street - the Y is almost at 1st Avenue (because of traffic regulations you cannot turn onto 14th Street to get to the Y except from 1st or 2nd Avenue). Free street parking is available nearby.


Restaurants Nearby: The neighborhood of the 14th Street Y is bustling, with a great variety of restaurants nearby (Polish, Ukrainian, Japanese, Italian, bagels, artichoke pizza, vegetarian, American food, etc.) There are many restaurants on 1st Avenue, 2nd Avenue and 14th Street, so plan to have a walk around after the Club's meeting!
