Extreme Makeover: Landmark Edition

First kisses, net neutrality, Bill Cunningham and more in our weekly look at the web

The head-to-toe $27 million restoration of the former Williamsburgh Savings Bank headquarters in Brooklyn (built in 1875) was footed by a developer who plans to open a hotel next door. Birdcage elevators, stained-glass skylights, a great dome, hand-cut mosaic floors and even replica doorknob and hinges with the “WSB” logo are some of the beautiful features of the restored building, which will now function as an event space.
