Yorkville Bank Building Gets Designation!

Yorkville Bank Building 1511 Third Avenue

UPPER EAST SIDE—The Historic Districts Council support the designation of the Yorkville Bank Building at 1511 Third Avenue as an individual landmark. “The elegant Italian Renaissance Revival-style building is not only a handsome addition to Third Avenue’s streetscape, it is also a reminder of the once largely German and Eastern European neighborhood it served and is named for. Much of the building’s details has withstood the test of time, and the former bank has proven amenable to adaptive reuse.” [Curbedwire Inbox]
