Borough president applauds Ridgewood Savings Bank on new Clinton Hill branch, production of historical documentary

To commemorate the opening of its 35th branch, and to promote the new location, Ridgewood Savings Bank has produced a short historical documentary on Clinton Hill, which interested parties can view in-branch or online at

The documentary shares little known facts about the area such as the origins of Underwood Park and the reason the area is sometimes referred to as “The Hill.”

With the new branch, at 1035 Fulton Street, Clinton Hill residents will now have easy access to a customer-based, contemporary banking experience. The branch offers a friendly and inviting environment for its clientele and exhibits a commitment to personalized interactions between bank customers and employees.

Ridgewood’s new location in Clinton Hill offers critical banking services to a previously underserved area and furthers the bank’s mission to “multiply the good” in life, in banking and in the community.

At the branch’s ribbon cutting ceremony on September 12, which will be held from 9 a.m.-noon, a representative from the Brooklyn borough president’s office will present a special proclamation to Ridgewood Savings Bank.

Attendees who are eligible, as well eligible participants who stop by the branch, will be able to enter a free sweepstakes for a chance to win one of the coveted prizes (winners to be selected on October 14) and to sign up for competitive introductory rates and offers.
