Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower

Peg Breen, president of the New York Landmarks Conservancy, shows off the inside architecture of the Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower in Brooklyn. What’s the Williamsburgh Saving Bank Tower you ask? It’s that really tall building located at 1 Hanson Place near Atlantic and Flatbush or… for you Manhattan people, the place where you get out of the subway in Brooklyn that’s not  in Williamsburg. Besides looking like a giant hand that’s giving all the other boroughs the finger, it’s the 2nd tallest building in Brooklyn! (Brooklyner is apparently the tallest :( )
