history. Founded in 1967 by a group of interested, concerned young professionals , the Knickerbocker Republican Club is the designated Republican party organization for the 76th Assembly District located in the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

purpose. The purpose of the Knickerbocker Republican Club is to increase the political awareness of our members and community, to provide a meeting place for members and their guests and friends who are interested in politics and current affairs, to encourage participation in political activities by building voter awareness of campaign issues and candidates for public and party offices and to help elect qualified candidates. Members participate in the many interesting facets of political campaigns. To fund these political activities, the Club sponsors an active social calendar.

party status. The Knickerbocker Republican Club is the official Republican County organization for the 76th Assembly District, with duly elected executive leaders and committee members who serve on the Republican County Committee for the County of New York. Several of our members have been nominated by the New York County Committee to represent the 76th Assembly District as State Committee-persons with the exclusive responsibility of nominating the Republican gubernatorial candidate. In its official capacity, the Knickerbocker Republican Club selects Republican candidates for party and political office.

community. The Knickerbocker Republican Club is a vibrant part of our local community and encourages members to participate in diverse East Side civic and charitable groups. The Borough President has honored several Knickerbocker Republican Club members for these activities by appointment to Community Board No. 8.

membership. We recruit and hold membership parties for new, prospective and renewing members. Annual dues include invitations to social events, special reduced rates for Knickerbocker Republican Club parties, and admission to "members only" functions.

social. We organize and host "just-for-fun" parties. These functions are extremely popular and provide an excellent opportunity for members and their guests to get together and meet new people in a purely social environment. Varying over the years, these have included New Years, St. Patrick's Day, Mardi Gras, July 4th and Halloween celebrations. Our December Holiday and St. Bartholomew's Summer Terrace Parties have become Knickerbocker Republican Club traditions.

Our other social events have included walking tours of Manhattan and Ellis Island, museum outings and theatre parties.
