Former New York Bank for Savings
Former New York Bank for Savings
Chelsea, Manhattan The New York Savings Bank, built in two sections in 1896-97, was designed by R.H. Robertson in the Academic Classic style popularized by the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago (1893). It is one of his most successful designs: for its size, its scale is monumental; its materials and workmanship are exceptionally fine. While Robertson used the classical architectural vocabulary, he was by no means a strict classicist. His propensity for functional considerations place him among the significant New York architects of the late nineteenth century. Subsequent alterations to meet the changing needs of the bank have been largely compatible with Robertson's original design. The bank occupies a prominent corner site at the axis o:! two major thoroughfares, and it is complemented by its classical counterpart, the Manufacturers Hanover Trust Bank built in 1907 on the south, side of 14th Street. New York Savings Bank - the patron The New York Savings Bank was organized in 1854 and opened at 21st Street and Third Avenue. Three years later the bank moved to the basement of the four-story New York County Bank building on the northwest corner of 14th and Eighth Avenue (81 Eighth Avenue) — the site of the present building. Following the Civil War the city continued to push northward and 14th Street, east and west, became a significant commercial thoroughfare; the introduction of rapid transportation encouraged the growth of light industry and tenement dwellings. The New York Savings Bank prospered. Subsequently the bank bought the building and to achieve greater visibility moved from the basement to the first floor. Other savings institutions were also aware of 14th Street's growing importance; for example, the Greenwich Savings Bank, founded in 1833, moved to its fifth home and first new building at Sixth Avenue and 16th Street in 1892. In 1896-97 the New York Savings Bank demolished its older building to make way for a new and more conspicuous headquarters on the same site. Banks and Architectural Imagery As industry, business, and commerce prospered after the Civil War, New York became the nation's financial capital. Apart from a few imposing buildings on Wall Street, however, banks were for the most part located in converted residences, or in office buildings, but prior to the 1880s and 1890s, rarely in quarters designed for them. Property values being so high in the financial district, many commercial banks began to build office buildings, conducting business on the ground floors and renting revenue-producing office space above. Savings banks, many of which catered to small private investors, were, in contrast, generally not located in the Wall Street area; therefore, taking advantage of less expensive real estate, they were able to build monumental bank buildings for their exclusive use, many on corner sites. Savings bank buildings proliferated in the 1890s. Among them were the Greenwich Savings Bank (see above), designed by Robert W. Gibson; the Bank for Savings at 22nd Street and Fourth Avenue, designed by Cyrus L.W. Eidlitz (1892); the sumptuous Bowery Savings Bank, designed by McKim, Mead & White (1894); and Robertson's Bank for Savings. (Eleven years later, in 1907, the New York County National Bank, later a branch of the Manufacturers Hanover Trust Co., joined the Bank for Savings on the south side of 14th Street.) The Academic Classicism popularized by the Columbian Exposition in Chicago (1893), replaced both the Richardsonian Romanesque and subsequent neo-Renaissance styles in popularity. Its leading proponent was the firm of McKim, Mead & White. Of all public building types, certainly banks lent themselves particularly well to the monumental classical style initiated by this firm. Although by 1896 Robertson had already produced classical designs, a possible prototype for his New York Savings Bank building may have been Robert W. Gibson's Greenwich Savings Bank; it was rough-cut granite and tentatively neo-classical, rather than an example of developed classicism. What may have attracted Robertson to the Greenwich Savings Bank building was Gibson's use of the comer site, so like that of the New York Savings Bank. The entrance was through a deep, arched and pedimented portico on the narrow Sixth Avenue elevation. Along 16th Street., Gibson's building was three bays long; a low dome was placed above this elevation's wider, central bay. Robertson could very well have borrowed this solution, resolving Gibson's nascent neo-classicism in his own design. The Architects R. H. Robertson was a distinguished and prolific New York architect active during the last three decades of the 19th and the first two decades of the 20th century. His designs reflect the major styles currant during those years — the High Victorian Gothic of the 1870s, the Romanesque Revival in the 1880s, and the Free Classic or neo-Renaissance style during the next two decades — but even during his lifetime t

These decorative lights in the Henderson Library virtually serve no purpose whatsoever. They do not light up anything on any of the floors and are a complete waste of electricity. The shades block the light from escaping, causing these structures to only serve as ornamentation.
