Bank of America makes it official on East Houston



The Bank of America signage is up now on Eldridge and Houston.

This will be the latest branch from the Bank of America Corporation, an American multinational investment bank and financial services company headquartered in Charlotte, N.C.

This BoA arrives at a time when other branches have been closing in the area, including the two Capital Ones in the East Village. In recent years, Citi, Chase and Santander all shuttered their outposts on Avenue A.

This address, 147 E. Houston St., was previously a Pay-O-Matic check-cashing center.

Bank of America checking into corner space on Houston and Eldridge



From the tipline (thanks Upper West Sider!) comes word of the new tenant for the retail space on the southwest corner of Eldridge and Houston.

Say hello to the next Bank of America branch... details are on the approved work permit...

Today in great disguises for robbing a bank!

Earlier today, an EV Grieve reader sent along the following email:

"Not sure what's going on, but for the past 2 days, there has been an ARMED GUARD outside the Bank of America on 2nd Ave and 4th Street. Khaki pants, white polo shirt and a GLOCK on his belt. Just standing there."

Well! As DNAinfo reports, the man in the photo behind tried to rob the bank on Monday. He left empty-handed. "He is described as in his 40s, 5-foot-5 tall and weighing 180 pounds. He has dark hair and was last seen wearing a white shirt and carrying a black backpack."
