With assets of $57.7 billion at March 31, 2021, New York Community Bancorp, Inc. is the holding company for New York Community Bank, a New York State-chartered savings bank serving customers throughout Metro New York, New Jersey, Florida, Ohio, and Arizona.
New York Community Bank is the largest thrift in the nation and one of the leading thrift depositories in most of the markets we serve. Our roots go back to 1859, when we were chartered by the State of New York in Queens, a borough of New York City. Since then, we have grown from a single branch in Flushing to 236 branch offices in five states!
In New York, we operate 128 branches of the Community Bank through five local divisions, reflecting the growth of our franchise through a series of mergers with other local thrifts: Queens County Savings Bank, with 31 branches in Queens County; Richmond County Savings Bank, with 20 banking offices on Staten Island; Roosevelt Savings Bank, with seven branches in Brooklyn, and Westchester County; our largest division, Roslyn Savings Bank, with 41 locations in Nassau and Suffolk counties on Long Island; and Atlantic Bank with 11 branches in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Long Island; we also operate 16 branches directly under the name "New York Community Bank".
In New Jersey, we serve our customers through our Garden State Community Bank division, with 40 branches in Essex, Hudson, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Union, and Ocean counties.
With the acquisition of the deposits and certain assets of AmTrust Bank in December 2009, we added two new divisions to our banking family: AmTrust Bank, which serves our customers in Florida and Arizona, and Ohio Savings Bank, which serves our customers through 28 branches in the Buckeye State. Our 26 branches in Florida are largely located in the state's southern and coastal counties, while our 14 branches in Arizona are primarily located in the central part of the state. Included in that network are three branches that were acquired in connection with our Desert Hills Bank transaction in March 2010.
We operate our branches with an emphasis on convenience, with 231 locations that feature 24-hour ATM banking, and 192 of our branches are open at least six days a week. We also offer our customers 24-hour access to their accounts with online banking, mobile banking, and banking by phone.
Established on April 14, 1859 in the village of Flushing, Queens County Savings Bank was the first savings bank chartered by the State of New York in the New York City borough of Queens. Until then, local residents would need to travel to Manhattan to do their banking; the opening of the borough’s first local bank was accordingly met with elation and relief.
While the bank expanded here and there over the course of the next 14 decades, its greatest growth occurred in just the last 15 years. In anticipation of expanding its franchise through the first of several mergers, the Bank changed its name to New York Community Bank on November 21, 2000. By the end of that year, NYCB had grown from 14 to 86 branches; today, it has more than 220 branches in five states.
In deference to its heritage as a Queens-based institution, the Community Bank operates each of its 31 branches in the county under its original name, Queens County Savings Bank
Established in 1875, The Roslyn Savings Bank was the first financial institution headquartered in Nassau County, one of two counties--with Suffolk--that constitute Long Island, New York. Its founders wanted to build a bank that would provide the Island’s residents with a safe place for their savings, as well as the financial assistance they’d need to build or purchase homes.
A member of the NYCB Family of Bank since October 31, 2003, Roslyn Savings Bank today serves the Island’s businesses and consumers through 41 conveniently placed branch offices.
A member of the NYCB Family of Banks since July 31, 2001, Richmond County Savings Bank is the third oldest of our divisions, with roots that go back to October 30, 1886. It was then that the bank was established to serve those who lived and worked on Staten Island, and it was less than one year later that it made its first mortgage loan.
Today, nearly every street on the Island has at least one home that was financed by Richmond County Savings Bank.
Originally located in the Odd Fellows Building at the corner of Richmond Terrace and Broadway, the Bank today has 20 convenient banking locations in all.
Roosevelt Savings Bank was established in 1895 on the corner of Gates Avenue and Broadway in Brooklyn under the name “Eastern District Savings Bank.” In 1920, the bank changed its name to honor the memory of the nation’s 26th president, Theodore Roosevelt.
In February 1999, Roosevelt Savings Bank merged with and into Roslyn Bancorp, which merged with and into New York Community Bancorp, Inc. in October 2003. Today, Roosevelt Savings Bank serves its customers through seven branches in Brooklyn as a member of the NYCB Family of Banks.
Atlantic Bank was established in the mid-1920s and was acquired by New York Community Bancorp, Inc. on April 28, 2006. We have 11 full-service branches in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Westchester, and Nassau County, and offer a comprehensive menu of financial services for small and mid-size businesses, commercial real estate investors, consumers, and their families.
Because Atlantic Bank is part of the New York Community Family of Banks, our customers can also bank at any of our 236 branches in the Metro New York, New Jersey, Ohio, Florida, and Arizona.
We are committed to providing our customers exceptional service and convenience, and a full-service menu of products and services to meet your business and personal needs. With free 24-hour access to a network of 231 ATM locations, we make it easy for you to bank with us.
Garden State Community Bank has been a member of the NYCB Family of Banks since March 2008, when we combined all the branches of four smaller New Jersey-based divisions--First Savings Bank of New Jersey, Ironbound Bank, Penn Federal Savings Bank, and Synergy Bank—into a single division with a highly relatable name.
While Penn Federal Savings Bank and Synergy Bank were directly acquired in 2007, First Savings Bank of New Jersey and Ironbound Bank were acquired in 1999 by Richmond County Financial Corp., which subsequently merged with NYCB.
By combining the strengths of these four local banks with the strengths of our institution, we established a Garden State community bank that offers more products and services, and more convenient locations, than any one of these banks provided on its own.
Today, we serve our customers through 40 branches in Essex, Hudson, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, and Union Counties, most of which first opened their doors nearly 14 decades ago.
Ohio Savings Bank is one of the more recent additions to a respected banking family that has been serving customers and communities for more than 156 years.
Established in 1889 as the Ohio Savings Home Loan and Building Co., the bank’s initial expansion was limited to Ohio until it opened its first Florida branch in 1989. Eleven years later, it expanded again, this time to Arizona. And seven years later, it changed its name to AmTrust Bank.
On December 4, 2009, AmTrust Bank became the newest member of our banking family, the first of our divisions to serve customers in non-contiguous states. Four months later, we elected to pay tribute to its forebear, by operating our 28 branches in Ohio under a more suitable name: Ohio Savings Bank.
AmTrust Bank is one of the more recent additions to a respected banking family that has been serving customers and communities for more than 156 years.
The first branch of AmTrust Bank opened its doors in the late 1980s, when Ohio Savings Bank opened the first of its branches in south coastal Florida under the “AmTrust Bank” name. Eleven years later, it expanded again--this time to Arizona--and on December 4, 2009, it joined the NYCB Family of Banks. With our acquisition of Desert Hills Bank less than four months later, we further expanded our franchise in the Grand Canyon State.
AmTrust Bank serves its customers through 40 convenient branches: 14 in central Arizona and 26 in Florida.
