NEW YORK CITY'S ICONIC CLOCKS

Post by koimaster » June 23rd 2021, 11:06am

New York is known for many things: the culture, the food, the architecture, and the hustle. It is both great at being exceptional, and at being awful. It also has almost 300 years of history inside it. Think of it this way, in 1880, New York had about 1.2 million people living in it. By 1910, 10 million. Fast forward to today and it sits at over 19 million. That amount of people packed inside a place like New York, well, creates New York. It is this aspect that contributes greatly to its rich and vibrant history. Have you ever thought of its horological history though?

Well, today, we’re looking at 10 iconic clocks in and around New York City. The great thing about these clocks is that each can be reached by foot. And we mapped it all out so you can explore the city and its history by foot or computer.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
