Read on to learn more about the impressive interior and exterior of The Apple Bank building at 2100 Broadway!

"The Central Savings Bank, built in 1926-28 (designed by York & Sawyer), is one of the most impressive and dominant features of upper Broadway. The building is six stories high, including the monumental story of the banking room, and it is faced with exceptionally handsome blocks of rusticated limestone. As a freestanding building, it is visible from all four sides, and three sides are accented by the tall arched windows which light the main banking room."

"This bank interior is one of the most impressive in the corpus of bank buildings from the York & Sawyer firm and an outstanding example of the best of the academic classical architectural tradition."
