Emigrant Savings Bank, Lower East Side, NYC

Located at 465 Grand Street, sitting alone on an island of land between Grand Street, Pitt Street and East Broadway sits this Emigrant Savings Bank from 1961-63. It seems relatively untouched with vintage signage, bands of windows and white brick, and metal trim. It was developed as an office building and meeting space by the Seward Park Housing Corporation. The architect of record was Herman Jessor, who designed a huge amount of cooperative housing in New York City, including acting as the main architect for the Seward Park Housing Corp. He also was the chief designer for Co-op City in the Bronx and its 15,500 units of housing.
