"There was a time when venerable institutions such as banks built with brick and marble to ensure a customer's faith in their stability.
Here we see the new facade of the Queens County Savings Bank/New York Community Bank which is not more more than a couple of months old.
Their quick fix redo involved an application of sheets of styro-foam (coffee cup material) covered by a skim coat of a plastic like stucco barely 1/4 of an inch thick over the existing brick!
It's already being bumped and scraped off----being located in the bustling Murray Hill shopping center located on Northern Boulevard in (where else), Flushing.
Will that particular branch survive longer than its new building covering?
Hey bank President Ficalora----are you still on board----and have you noticed this?" - anonymous
