Excerpt from Fifth Avenue Events: A Brief Account of Some of the Most Interesting Events Which Have Occurred on the AvenueAbout 1890 the Bank moved to its present site on the northwest corner of Fifth Avenue and 44th Street, then the residence of John B. Cornell, which had been built in 1866. It later bought the adjoining residence of Manton Marble, former editor of the World.An interesting feature in connection with the history of the Bank is that from 1626, when Peter Minuit bought the whole of Manhattan Island from the aborigines for about $24 in cheap trinkets, there have been but four transfers of the corner on which the Bank stands.In periods of financial distress The Fifth Avenue Bank has always been able to offer its patrons the support needed to tide them over many a difficult situation. Its growth has been steady, and among its large number of depositors may be found the names of some of the best-known firms in the city and many of the families which have long been prominent either socially or financially in New York City.No small part of its success has been due to the especial attention it gives to personal and family accounts, of which it has an unusually large number. Among other banking institutions to which many of the young men it has trained have gone to accept official positions, it is often spoken of as "the kindergarten of bankers." It offers, in addition to its banking facilities, a thoroughly equipped safe deposit vault with every modern convenience for the individual as well as the corporation. Should you contemplate the establishing of banking relations, it hopes you will give its officers an opportunity to explain some of the advantages it has to offer.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
