Raining – 1.

I slumped against the railing at the bus stop. It was raining, just a little bit, not enough for an umbrella, and cold. It’d be at least half an hour until the one I was supposed to take, would arrive. The streets weren’t so busy, it was Monday afternoon, and most of the people who needed to get to places were already there. Here, most of the people who were out were either children, the elderly or the idle. They moved up and down the sidewalk and storefronts in an eternal slouch, without any sense of purpose or aim.

I looked through the window of the building across the street. On the second story, a man was cutting a woman’s hair. It was a large single piece of glass that gave whoever looked through it, the impression that they were looking through an aquarium. The man moved with a deliberateness that made it seem as if each step he took while he revolved around the woman and the salon chair was part of some larger drawn out choreography. His back was straight and he moved with the awareness of someone who was careful to mute their footsteps, so as to not disturb the silence in a cave. The woman, seated in the chair closest to the window was ordinary. Besides the fact that she was in the salon, there was nothing remarkable about her. She likely was one of the townswoman on an errand or indulging herself. The man made quick vertical cuts along the strands of her which were held in the valleys of his fingers.

That was when I felt a weight fall onto my shoulder, a woman had placed her head on my shoulder. The sudden physical contact made me lean forward and shift off the railing. “I’m sorry, I guess I feel asleep,” she said. She must have came and stood by me while I was entranced by the scene in the salon. Whenever I am, caught by something, I am unaware of everything else.

“That’s alright,” I said. She had a slender, yet round face. She hid her behind a pair of Wayfarers and with her short hair coming down the sides like carefully planted ivy vines, she gave the feeling of a boyish femininity.
“Are you waiting for the bus downtown?” she said.
“No. I’m not,” I said.
“That’s too bad. You’re not away from here right?”
“I’m not. How’s you know?”
“There aren’t too many people around here. I pay attention to the new faces. They’re easy to pick out. Where are you staying?” she said.
“The Hotel Villete.”
“That’s not too far from it. Actually, you could barely walk it if you’re in the mood. It might take longer, but it’s a nice day today,” she said. She reached into her purse and drew out a cigarette. It was a 120 and she held it between her fingers in the same way that the barber across the street had held the woman’s hair. “Do you mind?”
“Not at all”. I reached into my breast pocket for my own cigarettes. It was my last one and I held the lighter flame against the tip. It was raining on the way to the bus stop and I had walked at least half a mile to the bus stop. The cigarette was bent out of shape and torn. Nothing happened so I threw it onto the sidewalk where a small stream took it to the gutter.

The woman offered me one of hers. I smiled and took it. It was a entirely white and had a small green line that went around it towards the lower end. It felt fragile and I was careful not to hold it tightly. She leaned forward towards my face and touched the glowing end of her cigarette with mine. I inhaled and watched the edges of the paper turn black and red. “Thanks.”
“My pleasure.”

It started to rain again. At first it was a drizzle, after a few seconds, it grew into downpour. We watched the start in silence. The bus arrived shortly after. It pushed a wake of water across the sidewalk and under our shoes. She was wearing white heels. Just high enough to be suggestive but modest still. “Well, I’ll see you around. It’s a nice day for a walk.”

She walked up the stairs, with the handle of her purple umbrella hung over her forearm and took a seat towards the front of the bus. I watched her in the window. She watched me.

Thomas was standing on his knees on top of the chair by the window when I got back. He didn’t turn to look behind him when I opened the door and kept staring out the window. I took the towel from the bathroom and wiped my head down. Draped my wet shirt across the metal bar in the bathroom. Thomas’ elbows were on the window sill. His cheeks were stuffed against the palms of his hands. At twelve years old, his features began to distinguish themselves. They drew clear lines as to what he inherited and from who. The texture and thickness of his dark brown hair was just like his mother’s. It even curled in the same elongated “S” shape whenever it grew too long. And like his mother, the ends at the back flared out like small wings and touched the bottom of his ear lobes. The roundness of his cheeks and wide jawbone though were my own. His temperament and disposition towards those around him, also completely my own.

“What are you doing?” I said.
“Nothing. Just looking outsi

1 Wall Street Building

1 Wall Street Building
Financial District, Manhattan, New York City, New York, United States

Constructed in 1929-31 as the corporate headquarters of the Irving Trust Company, this 50-story, limestone-faced skyscraper is situated on what was considered the "most expensive real estate in New York," the intersection of Wall Street and Broadway. The prestigious location became the site of this extraordinary Art Deco tower designed by the noted architect Ralph T. Walker of the firm of Voorhees, Gmelin & Walker. The Irving Trust Company had been founded as the Irving Bank in 1851 in New York’s Washington Market area to serve the needs of local merchants and food distributors. It then evolved through a series of mergers and acquisitions that began in 1907 when the Irving Bank merged with the New York Exchange Bank. By 1928, the bank had outgrown its impressive quarters in the Woolworth Building and was planning its own building on Wall Street. Ralph Walker, the architect chosen for the new facility, was well-known for his distinctive designs of buildings for the telephone and telegraph industries.

In his work, Walker attempted to express the possibilities of modern machine technology in order to create buildings that would be suggestive of the modem period. At 1 Wall Street, he employed a smooth limestone skin arranged in a series of undulating surfaces to simulate a fluted column, or the effect of draped material hanging from the sky, varying the rhythm of the curves throughout the building. Subtle setbacks lead to a narrow tower enhanced by large window openings near the top. The faceted, chamfered comers and pointed tops of the fl uted bays create a crystalline effect at the crown of the building. The lower stories are accentuated by narrow window openings with decorative mullions, shallow incised designs, and theatrically-inspired entranceways. Throughout this century the bank continued to expand, culminating in the 1988 acquisition of the Irving by The Bank of New York, which created today’s modem, international financial institution.


The Irving Trust Company’

The Irving Trust Company, as the bank which built the 1 Wall Street Building was known at the time, was formed primarily from two successful, independent institutions, the Irving Bank and the New York Exchange Bank. Each of these banks had existed independently for more than fifty years.

The Irving Bank first opened for business in March 1851, at 279 Greenwich Street, in the middle of New York’s busy wholesale food market. Of the city’s thirty-seven banks, five were located in the Washington Market area to serve the banking and currency brokerage needs of the local merchants. The first president of the Irving Bank was Edgar H. Laing, and its first Board of Directors was made up of grocers, wholesale food distributors, and other local merchants. The bank was named after Washington Irving, one of America’s most admired and renowned authors, with the intention that this name would add to the bank’s prominence and prestige.

In April 1851, the New York Exchange Bank was begun at 187 Greenwich Street by Selah Van Duzer and five other businessmen as a currency brokerage, but almost immediately it began offering a full range of banking services. This bank became the first New York City bank to apply for a national charter under the National Bank Act of 1863, and later was the sixty-seventh bank admitted to the New York Clearing House, an organization of local banks which "cleared" each day’s receipts among themselves.

Both of these banks expanded considerably during the nineteenth century, weathering several financial crises, including that of 1857 and the Civil Wan By the early twentieth century, these banks shared clients who were well-known and successful in local wholesale and retail markets, and a merger seemed practical. In 1907 a new organization, the Irving National Exchange Bank came into existence, with Lewis E. Pierson of the New York Exchange Bank as president and over $24 million in resources. Pierson continued to enlarge the bank’s operations, subsuming the Mercantile National Bank in 1912, under the name of the Irving National Bank. With this increased business and staff, the bank needed more space. F.W.Woolworth was building his new skyscraper on Broadway and Park Place, and since Woolworth was on the Irving’s Board of Trustees, and Pierson served on Wool worth’s board, the bank moved its headquarters there. This also helped Woolworth by providing a major tenant on the lower stories of the new structure.

When the Woolworth Building opened in 1913, the Irving National Bank occupied a large banking room on the second story, reached by a grand staircase from the building’s magnificent lobby, as well as vaults in the basement, offices on the third-story mezzanine, and a board room on the fourth story.

In the following years, the Irving Bank merged with several smaller institutions, beginning a trend toward conso
