Greenwich Savings Bank, Ladies Mile, NYC

IMG_5786

This building at the corner of Sixth Avenue and 14th Street was built in 1952 for the Greenwich Savings Bank. The architect was Adolph L. Muller, of Halsey McCormack and Helmer, a firm which designed bank branches across New York City for more than thirty years. Muller also designed the impressive Dollar Savings Bank (1932-52 in three separate sections) at 2516 Grand Concourse in The Bronx. The interior muralist at the Dollar Bank was Angelo Magnanti. There are also murals in the Greenwich Savings Bank but it’s unclear who did them.
