“A victim of the new economy…a monolith…pushing the neighborhood bank teller further toward the status of an artifact in American commerce, like the village blacksmith.”

Thomas J. Lueck, The New York Times

“Banks used to be the equivalent of financial temples, putting people close to God, now the marble of the temple is becoming less important than its phone line to the outside world.”

Mitchell Moss, New York University

“There was a bank close to Third Avenue that I think was called the Beehive Savings Bank, but my memory is a little fuzzy on the name. Anyway, it was a savings bank and right after our birthdays, we would go and deposit the few dollars (very few) that we got as presents in a saving book account. Naturally, it wasn't but a few days later that the withdrawals would begin!”

Edward Roberts, Yorkville Resident during 1950s
