New York in New York County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
From Beaux Arts Bank To Bananas
By using similar materials and Neo-classic forms, including light-colored stone and a copper crested cornice; (sic) both banks reflect the City Beautiful movement and Beaux Arts style. With most of its classical details, including the “BB” initials in the cartouche still visible above street level, today it serves as the cityís only Beaux Arts fruit and vegetable stand!
