Harlem in Inwood

I used to live in Inwood in the ’90s and walked past this Apple Bank regularly. Until a sign was removed recently, I had no idea that the building was originally a Harlem Savings Bank branch.

The classic Art Deco building was the creation of architects Halsey, McCormack and Helmer from the 1940’s.

Note that Harlem Savings Bank changed its name to Apple Bank for Savings in 1983.
