Formed in 1920, the firm of Halsey, McCormack & Helmer was noted for its prestigious banking projects, including the Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower in Brooklyn, New York; the Emigrant Savings Bank in the Bronx; and the grand Beaux-Arts building of the Dime Savings Bank in Brooklyn. The former Greenwich Savings Bank, built in 1952 by the firm is a very late example of classicizing Art Deco bank architecture.  The firm was purchased by Duffy, Inc. in 1967 and in 1986 Duffy merged with Ralph Mancini Associates, Inc. to create the New York-based architecture and interior design firm of Mancini-Duffy.
