A Former Version of Atlantic and Flatbush

September 25, 2007

Atlantic Center

Awhile back, I came across this old picture of the present-day Atlantic Center, where Atlantic and Flatbush meet.  On the left, where the row of brownstones is visible, is where the Williamsburgh Bank Building (One Hanson Place) currently stands.  The heading of the photo says “Times Plaza” — does anyone know if this is indeed the former name of this junction?

I don’t know when this photo was taken, but I believe that the Williamsburgh Bank was built in the 1920s, so it must pre-date that decade.

I can’t remember where I found the photo, so if it’s yours, let me know and I’ll happily credit and/or link you.
