The poor beleaguered VFW Post at Fourth and 10th hasn't had it easy. Work on the Culver Viaduct and its two stations - Fourth Avenue and Smith & 9th - has gone on well beyond the projected date of completion and the Post has been hidden under scaffolding for quite some time. For a while it tried to compensate with bright Party Room signs , though I don't know how successful this approach was. I've never seen even remotely festive activity here, though I've often thought I'd like to rent the place. Actually, I don't think I've even seen anyone entering or leaving the premises in years.
Sadly, a newer, politely phrased sign hints at less than pleasant goings-on at this secluded corner.
