Love the old regal bank buildings. I remember going to a bank in Oyster Bay with my mother as a child -- beautiful building where there were still real ink pens with inkwells to fill out forms. I don't think our plastic-y ATMs even have the cheap ballpoints on the chains anymore.

Some banks still have freebie plastic pen giveaways and in return you get all the ambiance of a local DMV office instead of this stunning interior

And those DMV-style offices have too often been inserted into the handsome old bank building interior.

This one is a real Wow
