History

The Bank of New York, New York's first bank, opened for business at the Walton House in Lower Manhattan on June 9, 1784, only a few months after the departure of British troops from American soil. The bank was created after a small ad in a newspaper inviting top businessmen to assist in the creation of a new bank.

The fledgling nation sought economic credibility during a period when its monetary system was complex and confusing.

Alexander Hamilton, a highly respected New York attorney and future statesman, was enlisted to write the new bank's constitution and became the individual most actively involved in the organization of The Bank of New York, guiding it through its early stages, and leaving a lasting imprint on The Bank's philosophy that remains with us today.

As Secretary of the Treasury in George Washington's first cabinet, Alexander Hamilton negotiated the first loan obtained by the new government in 1789 for $200,000. This was a milestone that helped establish the credit of the U.S. government and its independence.

The New York Stock Exchange was formed in 1792, and the first corporate stock to be traded on the NYSE was The Bank of New York.

The Bank of New York would go on to finance ports and transportation networks in the state including the Erie Canal and New York Subway. The bank was an important contributor to the growth of New York as a financial center.

On Jan. 15, 2010, BNY Mellon sold Mellon United National Bank ("MUNB"), a national bank subsidiary located in Florida.
