Looking Up at Pointy-Eared Creatures, at West 73rd Street

Apple Savings Bank
Photo by myself outside the Central Savings Bank at 73rd Street and Broadway on the Upper West Side.

The Apple Bank, formerly the Central Savings Bank, is located just where Amsterdam Avenue and Broadway intersect, on the Upper West Side. Pointy-eared creatures look down from the railing above.

The building was originally built in the 1920's. The upper floors were converted into condominium apartments in 2006.

Two bedroom units were originally sold for $5.8 million. A three-bedroom unit was originally sold for $6.65 million, or $2,204 per square foot. The average price for apartments in this neighborhood is $1,299 per square foot.

All apartments were outfitted with their own laundry rooms and kitchens with top-of-the-line appliances. The building also has an indoor gym and 24-hour doorman.

I really like the banks as in Mary Poppins.
They are serious, opulence and unassailable.
Except by the subprime:)
