The Dime

Fogarty Finger

Located in South Williamsburg, just off of the Williamsburg Bridge when one crosses from Manhattan, The Dime is a new, 23-story terracotta and glass building architecturally linked to the landmarked 1908 Dime Savings Bank. The residential lobby honors the exterior through its extension of the terracotta curvature seen in its scalloped walls featuring carved-out bookshelves. Minimalist, elegant furnishings, soft lighting, and a work by the artist Swoon - who also completed a mural on the building’s façade - combine to create a welcoming, fresh, and warm environment. The first-floor mail room features a playful nod to the original bank with its coin crest pattern wall covering. The fifth floor houses an array of amenities, including an expansive terrace, a community garden, yoga studio, fitness center, two lounge areas, and a half basketball court featuring a graphic guilloche-patterned wall covering that borrows from currency - another bank reference. The south lounge is a co-working space and looks out onto lush gardens framing a great lawn, while the north lounge employs a bar concept. On the 22nd floor, the penthouse level, a vintage-style speakeasy lounge looks out over the city. The interiors take inspiration from the iconic Havemeyer family, who collected art and enriched the architectural and cultural life of Brooklyn and beyond. The palette, in rich and dark tones, pulls from the family’s artwork collection now housed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Custom millwork lines the walls, while warm library lighting and artworks accentuate the space, which directly connects to an outdoor terrace.
