How this Beautiful & Iconic Bank Will Be Used

The Bank is an amazing architectural masterpiece that when looked at from the outside is quite impressive but the inside, appointed with Marble, Fantastic Double Level Windows that let in massive amounts of natural light, and the high ceilings make this an amazing and iconic structure that is part of the Art Deco era and has been beautifully maintained in its original candor.  The Space will have two separate Art Galleries, The Scott E. Schneider Wing which has two adjoining rooms, and the Main Art Gallery and Event Space of over 5,000 square feet , which will have unique art  artifacts, from New York State Based Artists all over the wall space, and throughout the room.

The Main Wall to the right of the bank when you walk in, will be dedicated to artwork, and character of Bud Fowler, the first black American Baseball player to play professional baseball sum 48 years before Jackie Robinson entered into the Major Leagues with the Brooklyn Dodgers. This “Wall of Fame” will be a permanently evolving display of relevant items and will evolve as the Bank gets traction in the community.  the goal of this Wall is to educate, the public at large the significance, of this baseball player, his iconic relevance to the game of baseball, and the exposure of the great things he did for baseball, with the ultimate goal of having him formally be on the next Veteran Ballot in the Fall of 2021, to indeed get inducted into the Hall of Fame.  See the documentary link: https://youtu.be/er2ui74dLBc
