This 170,000-square-foot bank and office building was built as part of the greater Roosevelt Field development. Designed under the clear influence of Mies van der Rohe, the building is an exercise in precise detailing, sheathed in a light gold anodized aluminum curtain wall with wire-mesh window screens. The bank was one of the first in the United States to provide drive-up tellers (in circular brick pavilions with cantilevered roofs).
