Welcome to The Manhattan Savings Institution Bank Building. One of the citys most impressive land-marked buildings in the heart of Nohos historic district. The building is located on the north east corner of Bleecker Street and is listed as one of the citys top ten loft buildings. Constructed in 1889 1890 by architect Stephen Decatur Hatch, built in a mixture of Queen Anne and Romanesque Revival styles using a medley of materials: carved and rusticated sandstone, terracotta, brick, copper and cast iron. The architect took advantage of the corner site, crowning the building with a copper-clad tower visible for blocks and constructing an impressive wrought iron front entrance gate with a two story high arched entrance surround.
