The New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission unanimously voted to designate the People’s Trust Company Building at 181 Montague St. and the National Title Guaranty Company Building at 185 Montague St. as landmarks.
“Built a quarter of a century apart, they are striking examples of the optimistic architecture of their times– one looking to the past to convey stability and reliability, and one looking to future growth and success,” said Meenakshi Srinivasan, chair of the Preservation Commission.
The two bank buildings are now home to a branch of Citibank, and a Chipotle restaurant.
