It appears so. I found this on the British Empire Study Group's home page:

"With the sale of the CCNY building, we are working on a location for our in-person meetings. Suggestions are welcome."

This is the first I've heard of this. Can anyone confirm? What a shocker, and what a loss to philately if that beautiful brownstone got sold. What's to become of the club?

The Collectors Club announced July 20 that it is considering selling its landmark headquarters building located at 22 E. 35th St. in New York City.

"That step means our Club, now in its 125th year, is exploring its options to make sure the space we inhabit in midtown Manhattan is ideally suited to fulfilling our mission and vision in the 21st century and beyond," Collectors Club president Larry Haber said in a June 20 email to club members.

The club has occupied the building since 1937. It was designed by architect Stanford White for the art dealer Thomas Benedict Clarke.

Significant renovations of the building took place in 1998 and 2015.

"Yet, despite all the care lavished upon it, our Clubhouse has numerous shortcomings: accessibility, installing current technology, and maintenance challenges," Haber said. "Concurrently with the listing for sale, we will be intensively evaluating our space needs."

Clubhouse Relocation Under Consideration

The Board of Governors of the Collectors Club has taken an important step towards securing the Club's future for the next several generations: we decided to retain one of New York's leading real estate firms to list our landmark headquarters at 22 East 35th Street for sale.

That step means our Club, now in its 125th year, is exploring its options to make sure the space we inhabit in midtown Manhattan is ideally suited to fulfilling our mission and vision in the 21st century and beyond.

From: https://www.collectorsclub.org/ as page exists today, 7-14-2022.

I have been going to that wonderful building for one reason or another for 52 years, and am still there on a weekly basis. I have no idea how I will deal with the separation. Badly, I suspect.

That depends upon the now new location's whereabouts, right?

The new location will not be the issue, it will not really change anything. It's more the building itself, which is a beautiful landmarked brownstone. I first went there in my teens.
