New Alliance Bank is no more. First Niagara should be listed in its place.

I know it is massive and impersonal, but I like BoA because their online banking is so easy to use.

I've had Peoples Bank for years and have always been treated fairly and the people at the West Woods branch are very nice. It's a pleasure to go to that branch. Their online services are also very good.
