The hallmark of many institutional or trade buildings is their high-wall installed clock, such as this one from the 35-story Hemsley Building on Park Avenue in New York City, built in 1929 after Warren & Wetmore’s architecture plan. The clock dial diameter is 9 feet. It is installed 68 feet above street level. Click on “image” below the illustration to learn more about the building.
