Ed sent me this photo of the plaque at the New York Federal Reserve.  Couple things struck my eye about it, the reference to the Iron Work being done by Samuel Yellen, how often to do you see a blacksmith being named on a plaque?  Also the Yellen name is the same as the current Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen.  Coincidence?  I doubt it.  This is a family operation and they keep things within the 13 banking families.

The 2nd thing that caught my eye was the reference to the architecture of Florence Renaissance Palaces.  They don't happen to mention which ones...  so I went looking for some images of the NY Federal Reserve Bank....

Which happens to look like a lot like another Palace in Florence (Firenze in Italian)....  The Pallazzo Vecchio in the center of Florence which was the Medici Family Castle...
