About The Landmark

This month we celebrate Historic Skyscrapers by visiting the landmark Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower at One Hanson Place in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. Built in 1927 by the architectural firm of Halsey, McCormark and Helmer, it is one of the largest clock towers in the world with some of the finest 20th-century interiors in Brooklyn.

At one time you could visit this former ornamental banking hall with the Brooklyn Flea. A market with gourmet food and vendors indoors for the winter.  For more information visit www.brooklynflea.com

Special thanks to Skylight One Hanson who meticulously restored an unaltered setting that lends a monumental significance and sense of the city’s rich history to each event, which run the gamut from fashion shows and gala dinners to weddings and photo shoots. (www.skylightnyc.com)
