This branch at Avenue X and West 2nd Street in Gravesend was built in 1965 by the Lincoln Savings Bank. It was constructed by Thompson Brinkworth Inc. and designed by Goldberg-Epstein Associates. According to Adolph Goldberg’s obituary in 1976, his firm did work for several financial institutions as well as designing numerous public housing projects for the City. The firm also did this bank on Fulton Mall. This building’s material cladding including brick and stone appears to be original. An early mention of the building’s construction lists the location as Marlboro, most likely named for the 28-building housing project of the same name nearby.
