Chase Manhattan Bank, N.A.
Address: Hillside Avenue and Dalny Road

Architect: Skidmore Owings and Merrill
Current Status: Extant
Award: Bronze Plaque for Banks
Designed by the prolific firm of Skidmore Owings and Merrill, this one-story bank branch has a long wall of white travertine panels facing Hillside Avenue. Originally this wall was unrelieved but a set of doors have since been added. The building is topped by a striking, geometric roofline of double tees. Both ends of the building are enclosed in a full glass wall and a now-closed drive through teller window is located on the interior side wall.
