State officials and executives from Ridgewood Savings Bank hit Clinton Hill on Sept. 12 for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to open the lender’s new Fulton Street storefront, which will make certain financial services more accessible to local residents, according to a spokeswoman.

“The Clinton Hill community deserves greater banking opportunit­ies,” said Laura Carter. “We identified this area as in need of more accessible banking products and services, loan and mortgage products, and business banking services.”

New York State Department of Financial Services superintendent Maria Vullo and bank branch manager Anthonie Marshall led the ribbon cutting, after which the location at 1035 Fulton St. near Downing Street officially opened for business, Carter said.

“We are honored to be able to make this a reality,” she said.

you obviously missed out on the free lobster rolls they were giving out on Saturday. Yummy!

Free lobster rolls is NEWS! also, Fulton Ave. is close to being a bank desert, so a new branch is news.

I realize you are just being a troll, "Flagina," but "Cortelyou lives" (Thanks for the shout-out!) has a point. There are a bunch of banks on Flatbush Avenue, between Church and Cortelyou, another half-dozen near the Junction and a couple at Newkirk Plaza, but nothing in Ditmas Park and Prospect Park South.
