Dime Savings Bank

The Dime Savings Bank of New York, originally the Dime Savings Bank of Brooklyn, operated from 1859 to 2002. It should not be confused with the Dime Savings Bank of Williamsburgh, also headquartered in Brooklyn, New York City.

The bank's former headquarters building at 9 DeKalb Avenue at Fleet Street in the Civic Center area of Brooklyn was built in 1906-08 and was designed by Mowbray & Uffinger in the Classical Revival style. It was significantly enlarged by Halsey, McCormack & Helmer in 1931-32. The interior of the building is "remarkable" and features large gilded Mercury-head dimes and twelve red marble columns supporting the rotunda; these were added in the 1931-32 expansion. The building was designated a New York City Landmark on July 19, 1994.

Dime was acquired by Washington Mutual in 2002, which subsequently failed in 2008. Dime was included in the assets that were sold to JPMorgan Chase by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation after Washington Mutual was seized and placed in receivership.
