Years ago, oh maybe fifteen, before all the banks in America consolidated, subsumed or merged into three or four, there was a local institution called the Dime Savings Bank.

I thought of that this evening as I crossed over the Brooklyn Bridge from Brooklyn into the city.

The Dime Savings Bank building on the Manhattan side used to have a large red neon sign on top saying, as I suppose you’ve guessed, Dime Savings Bank. Only somewhere along the way the “e” had burned out. So it read “Dim Savings Bank.”
