Chase Manhattan Bank, Great Neck, NY

IMG_2751

There is a wealth of mid-century architecture on Long Island (not surprisingly given its post-war development history). This bank sits on a side street near the train station at the corner of Grace Avenue and Park Place. It was designed in 1961 by Benjamin C. Thompson, a member of The Architects Collaborative, and better known for 1970s era marketplaces including Fanueil Hall in Boston, Harborplace in Baltimore and South Street Seaport mall in Manhattan. The building survives in relatively good condition and is a designated landmark of the Village of Great Neck.
