Chinese American Bank

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.

Famous quotes containing the words bank and/or american:

    That strain again, it had a dying fall;
    O, it came o’er 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.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The suburban housewife—she was the dream image of the young American women and the envy, it was said, of women all over the world. The American housewife—freed by science and labor-saving appliances from the drudgery, the dangers of childbirth, and the illnesses of her grandmother ... had found true feminine fulfilment.
    Betty Friedan (b. 1921)
