Mo' Banks: Sovereign, Chase, Citi

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Hark—what's that? Yet another bank opening? Necessity being the father of invention and all, we had to create a Racked feature dedicated to—you guessed it—new banks. So, meet Mo' Banks. Spotted bank construction about town? Do tell. Okay, enough. On to the banks!

1) Atlantic Ave: Above, an early look at the Sovereign Bank coming to Two Trees' development Court House on Court Street and Atlantic Avenue. Oh, how that "Coming Soon" sign tempts us. [Racked Inbox]

2) Dumbo: Chase is opening a vessel for Dumboites to pour their dollars into inside the ground floor of J Condo at 100 Jay Street. [Brooklyn Record]

3) Park Ave So: Not wanting to be left out of the expansion party, Citibank decides to open in the under-Citibanked corridor of Park Avenue South. From a reader, "Surprise, surprise: I have it on good authority that the space at the southwest corner of 19th and Park Avenue South will be a new Citibank branch." [Racked Inbox]
