About the Williamsburgh Savings Bank

Designed by Halsey, McCormack & Helmer and completed on May 1, 1929, the Williamsburgh Savings Bank at One Hanson Place is an icon of the Brooklyn skyline. The main floor of the building was occupied by a succession of banks until the early 2000s, with the tower above providing rental offices to a variety of small businesses, including enough dental offices that it was dubbed the “Mecca of dentistry.” Though it lost its claim as the tallest building in the borough in 2010, the four-faced clock at its top remains one of the largest in the world. The Beaux Arts Ball will be held in the 63-foot high former main banking hall, one of New York’s most famous interiors, a space brimming with a mix of Art Deco and Neo-Romanesque details and iconography that celebrate the building’s former depositors’ “industry and thrift.”
