A new exhibit at The New York School of Interior Design’s spring show, “Rescued, Restored, Reimagined: New York’s Landmark Interiors,” hopes to prove that New York City architecture isn’t all about the skyline. The show compiles more than 80 archival and newly-commissioned photos of the city’s landmarked interiors. Check out six of those landmarks via Curbed after the jump.

1. Dime Savings Bank

 

Designed by bank specialists Mowbray & Uffinger and built in 1908, this was one of busiest banks in the early 20th century.

2. Della Robbia Bar

 

Built in 1913, this underground bar was part of the Della Robbia Grill restaurant at the Vanderbilt Hotel.

3. Williamsburg Savings Bank (One Hanson Place)

 

This 37-story building was once the tallest building in Brooklyn.

4. Cunard Building

 

This 65-foot-high domed space was once the ticketing area for the Cunard Steamship Company.

5. Film Center Building

 

The Ely Jacques Kahn’s Film Center Building preserves one of the best Art Deco interiors in the city.

6. Surrogate’s Court

 

These designs by architect John Thomas were originally intended for a proposed new City Hall. Ultimately, the plans were used for the Hall of Records. [Curbed]Christopher Cameron
