    Thank you – almost any one i know who lives on the Hudson or frequently makes use of the walk turned to this clock as an extraordinarily convenient time marker.
    Sad to see it go – but i understand it was badly hit by Sandy and after numerous attempts at mending it, it still refused to work.

    Unsure whether it was taken down to be properly repaired – or whether it was thought not to be worth it anymore.

    It was grandfathered in some historic deal as part of the Goldman Sachs Building deal.
