Originally constructed between 1922 and 1924 as The Greenwich Savings Bank, the building currently known and admired as Gotham Hall was built to serve as the bank’s headquarters with a prominent midtown address. Featuring an architectural design by York and Sawyer and among the most impressive buildings in all of Manhattan, Gotham Hall sits at the intersection of 36th Street and 6th Avenue. The interior boasts Corinthian columns, granite walls, marble flooring, inscriptions and antique attributes symbolizing wisdom and commerce, topped by a domed ceiling with a 3,000-square-foot stained glass skylight. After surviving decades of American history, by 2000 this historical landmark had transitioned into the most prestigious place to host a sophisticated affair. Take in the stunning architecture and classic character of this historical structure while enjoying cocktails with colleagues at this iconic New York City building.
