National Portrait Gallery in the Second Bank of the United States

Interesting
This building with marble columns (1818, William Strickland) is a superb example of neo-Greek architecture. Opened in 1824, the bank was one of the world's most powerful financial institutions until President Andrew Jackson revoked its charter in 1832.
