Joel takes his parents to get a line of credit at a bank run by a friend of Archie’s. Joel spends much of the episode locating money his mom has stashed all over their apartment, factory, and even in Midge’s parents’ apartment, using a “treasure map.” Joel’s father likens the banking hall to the Vatican. The bank scene is filmed in the banking halls of the Dime Savings Bank in Downtown Brooklyn, which is undergoing conversion into a new residential development that will be the tallest in Brooklyn, and one of the very tallest in the city.
Take a look at our behind the scenes visit into the banking halls at 20 Exchange Place.
