Historic Bank Building in Old Brooklyn being stripped for Marble

I walked by the historic bank building at corner of Pearl and Broadview today - looking in the window - it appears that the building is being systematically stripped of the marble wall trim.  The interior is very reminescent of the United Bank Building - which was renovated to house Crop restaurant.   The building is listed with CBRE commercial real estate.  http://www.cbre.com/EN/findproperty/Pages/default.aspx

Hubbell and Benes building being stripped by scumbag

Thank you to an architect friend who identified the Pearl Savings Bank Building as Hubbell and Benes.  I am calling Landmark Commission to let them know that the current scumbag owner Jordan First LLC  is stripping the building of marble.
