About Gotham Hall

Gotham Hall constructionOriginally constructed between 1922 and 1924 as The Greenwich Savings Bank, the building currently known and admired as Gotham Hall was built to serve as the bank’s headquarters with a prominent midtown address. Featuring an architectural design by York and Sawyer, the intersection of 36th Street and Broadway was met with one of the most impressive spaces Manhattan has ever seen.

The interior boasts Corinthian columns, granite walls, marble flooring, inscriptions and antique attributes that symbolize wisdom and commerce, and a domed ceiling with a 3,000-square-foot-stained-glass skylight. Surviving decades and generations in American history, by 2002, this historical landmark transitioned into the most prestigious place to host a sophisticated affair.
