Brooklyn - Williamsburgh Bank photos

Thanks to The Tin Man for a link to a "Beautiful panoramic view from the top of the Williamsburgh Savings Bank Building, the tallest building in Brooklyn." ... 1 Hanson Place, Brooklyn

Here are some more photos of the Bank and the neighborhood around the bank from Satan's Laundromat: Williamsburgh Savings Bank 1 (with links to more photos from other sites), and Williamsburgh Savings Bank 2. He advises

the cathedral-like 63-foot-ceilinged banking hall on the ground floor, which is perhaps New York's greatest interior and certainly Brooklyn's, will be converted into a restaurant. (See it now, while you still can: the HSBC bank closes September 30th.)

Old News - Conversion to Condos

the Wired New York Forum has a thread discussing the conversion of the building into condos.

Crain's New York reported in May that
Williamsburgh Savings Bank Building has been bought by Canyon-Johnson Urban Funds, an investment concern started by “Magic” Johnson, and the Dermot Co., which plan to renovate the landmarked, 35-story tower into condominiums and ground-floor retail space.

Two short articles: the Daily News and Curbed.
