Wallet Card at Greenwich Savings Bank

High above 57th Street and 5th Avenue looms a sign for Greenwich Savings Bank. Greenwich Savings Bank closed in 1981 due to financial troubles; at the time it was the 16th-largest bank in the US.

The bank's main office was on 37th Street between 6th Avenue and Broadway. The location is now an events hall called Gotham Hall. (Can't you just hear the narrator for the old Batman show saying "Meanwhile, at Gotham Hall..."?) On the Broadway side of the building an automatic deposit drop-off box remains as testimony to the building's former purpose.
