This building façade sits inside the American Wing of the New York MET Museum. The building was once the Branch Bank of the United States and was located on the north side of Wall Street, between Nassau and William streets.
The building was built in 1825 and was designed by Martin Euclid Thompson (1786–1877). Thompson was a leading exponent of Greek Revival style architecture. The bank building was his earliest known design. In the 1850s, it was used as the United States Assay Office before being demolished in 1915. Fortunately, the façade was saved and had resided inside the New York MET since 1924.
