  • Serbian Association of New York was founded in the spring of 1992 in Queens.

    Motivated by the events in the fatherland and by a desire for Serbs in Queens to have something "of their own," a group of local Serbs decided to establish an association with goals to gather Serbs of New York City and their friends in one, united community; to nurture Serbian culture and tradition and to carry the Serbian traditional values over onto the Serbian youth that is brought up outside of the fatherland. Shortly after the founding, the Association have bought the building which is, to this day, the residence to the institution known as the Serbian Club.

    For 14 years, SANY is striving to accomplish the original goals and set new ones. The membership has been in a steady rise and it's closing in on 100. Hundreds of young Serbs and their friends have come out of the ranks of the Dance Ensemble "Opancici" and the Soccer Club "Serbia," and thousands of others have filed through the Club halls socializing with their fellow Serbs or enjoying the good, old Serbian cuisine.

    The Serbian Club continues to exist as the only Serbian place in the New York City and as the gathering point for many Serbs looking to have good fun, good meal, to socialize, to play sports, even to look for work.

    The Association is governed by the Executive and the Supervising Board, both elected at the Annual Assembly of the Members of Association, in February of 2006. Both bodies are elected to one-year term with the possibility of re-election.
