Colonie, New York's pride and joy. it's the Animal Hospital. And yes, the building does look a bit institutional, although from an angle (and if you squint your eyes) it resembles an ocean liner. Then again, anything could look like an ocean liner if you squeeze your eyes hard enough.

At one time there must have been some serious money here judging from the quality of the old bank building where it seems no expense was spared, this quality of architecture is usually reserved for large cities.

The Thames Bank was chartered in 1825 and the second banking institution in Norwich. The pictured bank building was built in 1910. See this site for more information. 08-13
