Long Island City Savings Bank
Address: 97-27 Queens Boulevard
Neighborhood: Rego Park
Architect: Halsey McCormack and Helmer
Current Status: Significantly Altered
Award: Honorable Mention
This building still exists although its original use as a bank is no longer apparent. While the structure maintains its granite base, brick face, and limestone trim, the space is now used by a pharmacy and karate studio, both of whom have obscured the front with signage. Another telltale sign of the original building are two limestone medallions on either end of the facade.
