The former First National Bank Building, built in 1902 in the aftermath of the Great Paterson Fire, rests on a massive rusticated ground story, with four rusticated columns framing three arched entry and window bays topped by exaggerated keystones and voussoirs. Continuous, vertical window bays rise three more stories above the ground story in a solid block, topped by a severe, classicized cornice and parapet. Also designed by Carrere and Hastings, who designed Paterson City Hall, the First National Bank best reflects the influence of City Hall on the district.
