This post is about Long Island, though. The East River Savings Bank was originally chartered in 1848, and lasted for 140 years before changing its name to River Bank America in 1988. In 1996 the bank was acquired by Marine Midland. Behind a Blinds to Go in Valley Stream you can still make out the labelscar from the East River Savings Bank sign, a sign which must have come down 30 years ago.
