I'd like to take a day and walk Manhattan, photographing the decorative clocks on the sidewalks and buildings. I'd appreciate any information on the locations of the clocks worthy of a snapshot! Thanks, Ken

Probably not the first choice of outdoor clocks in the city, but this is one you should definitely photograph. It's at 250 Houston St, an apartment building called Red Square.

It's a bit garish, but the large clock on Third Avenue above the entrance to the Grand Central Plaza office tower.
