The columns at the end changed too

They were Ionic, but now have Corinthian capitals

Wow!

A dime sure went a lot farther back then.

Very Elegant

I can hardly wait to see the drive-thru. Wonder which window has the lollipops.

Opulent

Doesn't look like dimes at all.

Not bad, just different

The lobby of Chrysler House / Dime Building looks a little different now. I imagine most of the change came when the main floor became retail space instead of banking. I'm surprised the columns along the side were squared off.
