Building on 150 Years of Trust, Service and Tradition

In 1864, the era of Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War, a new savings bank opened for business in a ferry terminal on Kent Avenue in Brooklyn. Many other banks have opened in New York City since then, and many have closed. But Dime Community Bank has stood the test of time. Today, 150 years since our founding, we’re stronger than ever. That’s an achievement worth celebrating.

Below are a few articles, photos and a video, all of which commemorate the celebration of this milestone in Dime history. We also invite you to explore an infographic depicting the evolution of our Brooklyn neighborhood, and our bank along with it. Here’s to 150 more years!
