I wonder

What sort of prestigious institution is housed within these magnificent confines?

    I always fail on these tests that are run on forgotten ny- I’m gonna say the greenpoint savings bank in greenpoint- except I don’t see any stains on the ceiling from soda cans that had been shook up before opening!

    That’s a pretty ceiling! I haven’t been inside this CVS but I was in the area a couple of weeks ago, there’s a nice clock outside the building and the subway station right next to it is full of cute small figures by Tom Otterness who also did this ..

    Interesting….if it was a branch of Green Point Savings Bank. in the 1990’s I worked for a company in San Diego owned by Green Point Bank. It was called Green Point Housing Services. It no longer exists.

    I guess it pays to look up. You might get a nice visual reward.

    This was a bank. When I arrived in NY in 1997, it was a fancy carpet store. Then it became a gourmet food shop, a Sutton Place Gourmet or Balducci’s. Then it became a CVS.
