The Chinese American Bank (中美銀行) was an overseas Chinese bank in the United States headquartered in New York City, with branch offices in Chinatown, Manhattan and in Chinatown, Flushing.
The privately owned community bank was originally established in 1967 to serve the ethnic Chinese in Chinatown. A burgeoning community of Chinese immigrants in the Flushing Chinatown prompted the bank to open another branch there.
The Chinese American Bank was acquired by United Commercial Bank in the second quarter of 2007; United Commercial Bank failed and was acquired by East West Bank in November 2009.

O, it came oer my ear like the sweet sound
That breathes upon a bank of violets,
Stealing and giving odor. Enough, no more,
Tis not so sweet now as it was before.”
