Back on Oct. 12, we shared the news that the Citibank branch at 50 Avenue A between Third Street and Fourth Street is closing in January.
In recent days several EVG readers shared an email that Citi sent to them about the closure:
We are writing to let you know that the Citibank branch at 50 Avenue A, New York, NY 10009 will be closing on January 13, 2017, at 3:00 PM. We’d like to thank you for the opportunity to have served you here, and we assure you that you will receive the same great service, now at a new location.
This will have no effect on your account(s). It may be convenient for you to bank at our Seward Park branch located at 411 Grand St., New York, NY 10002 but remember, you can always visit any of our branches for your banking needs. Plus, you'll continue to enjoy easy access to your account(s), however you choose, with:
• Thousands of fee-free ATMs nationwide¹
• CitiPhone Banking®
• Citibank® Online
• Citi Mobile® App
• Mobile Check Deposit with your smartphone²
• CitiBusiness® Online
We apologize for any inconvenience this change may cause you. Thank you again for your continued business.
An EVG reader asked a customer-service rep at the branch about the closing. The rep did not know why this was happening, and that few people were likely to use the Seward Park branch seeing as the Stuy Town location on First Avenue at 15th Street was more convenient for many of the bank's current patrons.
