I spotted this clock while coming up out of the subway at Fifth Avenue and 23rd Street in the Flatiron district the other day. I'm afraid I haven't been able to find out much about it, other than ornamental clocks used to be placed outside on the sidewalks to attract customers, especially outside jewelry stores. I believe this one has been in place since 1909 and I think it still works. Behind where I took this photo is the Flatiron building. I should have taken this shot from the other direction!
