Cleveland’s Great Bank Lobbies: Hidden Temples of Prosperity

Most people think of banks as uptight, grey-suited and above all, not a place to let loose a creative spirit. Well, Cleveland’s gorgeous downtown bank lobbies are hidden jewels, known mostly to bankers and their clients. In this prowl you will experience these lobbies up close and personal and learn about their oftentimes colorful histories, extravagant design and how they are moving into the 21st century. Banking has never been so interesting! This prowl is 40 minutes long and recorded Summer 2008.

{

Meetup: In the Elevator Lobby of Key Tower, in the Starbucks seating area by the elevators. Please note that you need to prowl during banking hours, 9am to 5pm, plus, the Federal Reserve Bank is open Mon-Thu 10am-2pm.
