Grand Central Terminal Clock


Here’s another shot I took a while ago of the clock outside Grand Central Terminal on 42nd Street. Probably if you have been to New York before, you’ve taken the same shot! This is some information from Wikipedia:

Outside the station, the clock in front of the Grand Central facade facing 42nd Street contains the world's largest example of Tiffany glass and is surrounded by sculptures carved by the John Donnelly Company of Minerva, Hercules and Mercury. For the terminal building French sculptor Jules-Felix Coutan created what was at the time of its unveiling (1914) considered to be the largest sculptural group in the world. It was 48 feet (14.6 m) high, the clock in the center having a circumference of 13 feet (4 m).
