I’ve been digging around lately,
Looking at pictures of the downtown skyline in the 60s, I see something not seen prior; a medium red brick building with white framed windows and a grey roof. I could never find information on it until I used the New York Times. According to old articles, the ‘skyscraper’ was Georgian in style, built in 1964 and built for the Franklin National Bank. It was purchased by Barclays Bank and demolished in 1987 for the plaza and park next to 75 Wall Street.
Does anyone else have pictures or more information on this building? the only ones I could find were these ones, taken from a distance. (there are others, but I only saved these two to my laptop)
Here, seen the year it opened and year of demise:
