Inscription.  
IN 1869.(sic) The building was constructed to be Brooklyn’s first safety deposit bank. The area’s only cast iron building was designed in a Palazzo style and erected in 1968-1869. One of the few remaining cast iron facades in term of detail, one of the first and rarest existing in the country.
The two story building was recently converted to a fashionable restaurant, bar and lounge. Hollywood movies, television programs and commercials have been filmed inside and outside this location. So feel free to enter and enjoy this historic fabulous restaurant and lounge.
