UNION SQUARE SAVINGS BANK, Union Square

Corinthian-columned, monumental Union Square Savings Bank, Union Square East and East 15th, was built in 1905 as a mini-Greek temple worshiping thrift. Its architect was Henry Bacon, the designer of the Lincoln Memorial and also of the prototype in 1911 for thousands of NYC park lampposts.

For the past few years the former bank, now the Daryl Roth Theatre, has hosted Fuerzabruta (Italian for “brute force”) described as a ‘postmodern theater experience.’
