The Federal Reserve Bank of New York was constructed 1919-1924 to the designs of Architects, York & Sawyer. Ironwork is by America’s master iron craftsman, Samuel Yellin. Designed in the Italian Renaissance style, the Bank’s fine stonework and beautifully executed ironwork recall Florentine palaces of the fifteenth century. The Bank was designated a New York city Landmark in 1965 and is listed on the State and National Register of Historic places in 1980. As part of a long-term contract for the care of the building, Miriam led the condition survey of the primary public areas of the lobby and historic banking halls. She also led the restoration of exterior ironwork.
