Greenpoint Savings Bank

807 Manhattan Avenue
Helmle & Huberty, 1906-08

The Greenpoint Savings Bank, established in 1868, was housed in four different buildings in the neighborhood prior to commissioning this grand structure. Designed by the same firm responsible for the Shelter Pavilion in Monsignor McGolrick Park, this neo-Classical, Roman-style, limestone bank features a granite base, a recessed portico with four Doric columns topped with a triangular pediment, a large dome and patterned slate shingles. The Greenpoint Savings Bank is located within the Greenpoint Historic District, and the State and National Register Historic District boundaries.
