Central Saving Bank - Upper West Side
The Central Savings Bank, also known as the Apple Savings Bank for Savings, at 2100-2108 Broadway was designed by Edward York and Philip Sawyer in 1928. The tall, large banking floor still serves Apple Savings Bank, but the old-fashioned second through fifth floors, which used to provide one of the most impressive office spaces in the city, have been converted to apartments. Samuel Yellin is responsible for the design of the grilles, gates, lanterns, brackets, doors, windows, bank screens, mail box, signs and a revision to the lock for the safe deposit grille.
