Too Many Banks?

New, 10 comments

There was a time when the idea of too many banks messing up things in Bed-Stuy would have sounded like a weird joke, but no longer. A fifth bank branch has opened on a three-block shopping strip and people aren't necessarily feeling it. The new Amalgamated Bank on Fulton St. joins Citibank, Chase, Washington Mutual and Carver Federal Savings Bank. One resident says, "It should have been somewhere where they don’t have so many banks on one block." [NYDN]
