|Northside Savings Bank|
The Northside Savings Bank sits near what was once the focal point of a street that used to be the dominant commercial route through the neighborhood. Where Grand Street meets the East River, at what is now Grand Ferry Park, there used to be a ferry landing that helped to make the street the main thoroughfare. However, when the Williamsburg Bridge opened, the primary commercial route shifted to Broadway.
|Cast Iron Cornice|
Above the arched windows sits the cast iron cornice. If you enlarge this photo, you can see where the bank's moniker used to span the center portion of the cornice.
