Wow.

In Brooklyn, New York, is the former Williamsburgh Savings Bank, built in 1875.

For decades this majestic pile was grimy and overlooked.

In 2014 it reopened, as an events space, after a extraordinary restoration. The building now sparkles inside and out and it has been burnished to perfection.

There is a gallery of images here.
