Carved into the outside of the building are sculptures of historical coins from the 11 different countries that the City Bank-Farmers Trust had branches in, and set into the ornate metal doors are panels depicting transportation – everything from trains, to steamships, to hot air balloons. Inside, there are WPA murals illustrating the history of New York, and also more metalwork doors – one featuring a sculpture of the building itself.
