Municipal Credit Union

Address: 280 St Nicholas Ave

Phone: (212) 693-4900


Municipal Credit Union has been serving the financial needs of our members since 1916. The credit union was chartered in response to the concern of New York City Mayor, John Purroy Mitchel, who wanted city employees to have a way to save at reasonable rates and a low cost borrowing alternative to loan sharks.

MCU started out with one branch in the Municipal building using handwritten ledgers. At the end of the first year, nineteen charter account holders had combined deposits of $570. Today, we have 17 branches, more than 400,000 members and over $2.4 billion in assets.

Mission Statement:

Build lifetime quality financial relationships with each member by providing competitive products and excellent service.
