Farmers and Mechanics Savings Bank

Farmers and Mechanics Savings Bank
365.268

The former Farmers and Mechanics Savings Bank, built in 1942, is now a Westin hotel. According to Wikipedia, the bank’s boardroom on the 10th floor, with floor-to-ceiling windows, is now a conference room. The original bankt vault on the lower level is also a conference room, while the former safety deposit vault is now a wine vault and the entire bank has been made in to a restaurant, called B.A.N.K. The restaurant kept as much of the original woodworking as possible. Former offices now serve as private dining rooms and the teller counter now serves as a bar. On my list of places to visit? Yes, you can bank on it.
