About Time

For the first time in a year and a half, the four-sided clock tower on the Williamsburg Bank Building is telling correct time.

The Daily News reported that three of the four faces started up again at noon Wednesday, Jan. 16. The timing of the happy event is not random; on Jan. 15, the first of the now condofied building's new tenants moved in. Ain't that just the way.

Ah yes, I was quite happy to see the clock working and lit up. The tower is in plain view from my desk and kitchen table, so now I don't need a watch!

I have to say that the lights on the hands are a bit too "neon" or something. They're very bright and sort of clash with the design... but I'm sure we'll get used to it.
