“How did you ever get the name Country Bank?” With our main office located in the heart of Manhattan it seems a very reasonable question. The answer is simple. Country Bank has its origins in Upstate New York, founded in 1988, in the rustic setting of Putnam County. That is how the “country” was put into Country Bank. Even after relocating the bank headquarters from Carmel to 42nd Street in “The Big Apple” the name stayed. We believe the notion of a small town feel and warm country atmosphere, amidst the concrete and skyscrapers of New York City, is a nice departure from the everyday way of doing business.

Country Bank is an FDIC-insured, full service commercial bank devoted to building relationships with our customers. We have a revolutionary attitude for a modern bank. We actually encourage our customers to call us or stop by any of our branch locations. Country Bank employs a highly trained technical and professional staff, but we still believe the best relationships are built with those old-fashioned, low-tech tools such as a personal conversation or a handshake.

Country Bank is a regional leader in the commercial real estate lending business. We serve the New York City metro area, New York State, New Jersey and Connecticut.
