NEW YORK — Capital One Financial Corp. closed its bank branches in the New York metropolitan area, while other banks including JPMorgan Chase run with shortened hours of operation.
None of the big banks reported issues with their automated-teller machines or their online banking services.
Most of JPMorgan Chase's branches in the metropolitan New York area will remain closed Monday morning due to heavy snow storm that buried the area Sunday.
A spokeswoman for New York's largest bank by number of branches and deposits said JPMorgan plans to open later Monday about 70 of its almost 1,000 branches in the metropolitan area. The disruptions remain confined to the metro New York area, the spokeswoman said; branches in Rochester, N.Y., and Syracuse, N.Y., are open.
Most Manhattan branches of Bank of America Corp. will remain closed, a spokeswoman said as employees have difficulties getting to work, but Citigroup Inc., said its New York branches will open at noon. Bank of America is the second largest bank in New York, with more than 500 branches, and Citi is third, with almost 300; both banks said in other areas branches already opened.
Bank of America doesn't plan to keep any branches closed, while a Citi spokeswoman said branches in New Jersey and Boston will remain closed due to a state of emergency declared in those areas.
Wells Fargo & Co.'s Wachovia branches in New York are expected to open late, though hundreds of branches in other areas of the Northeast remain closed, a spokeswoman said. Local branch and regional managers are designated to make decisions about hours and opening.
Branches of Toronto-Dominion Bank's TD Bank opened late and will close earlier than usual, at 5 p.m., a spokeswoman said. HSBC Bank USA, the American retail banking subsidiary of HSBC Holdings Plc said only one branch in New Jersey remained closed.
