Time for the new clock faces at St. Mark's Church in-the-Bowery


[Photo by EVG reader George Towne]

The steeplejacks are working today at St. Mark's Church in-the-Bowery, where a new (or refurbished?) clock is being installed...

EVG Steeplejack Correspondent Steven shared these photos of the workers installing the clock faces...















Workers removed the clock back on June 29 at the landmarked church on 10th Street and Second Avenue.

And the folks at the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation shared this photo...



EVG reader Brian Philip Katz sent these pics...





The clocks had been stuck at 6:20 for some time.

I was hoping for digital clock with the time and temperature, but I guess this will have to do.

Save the clock tower!

That's good but I wish they had used a more historically accurate clock face, it is an important building not just to the neighborhood but to the city's history.

So, if the slightest thing goes wrong, it won't even be right twice a day.

Glad to have working clocks! I do wonder what the thought process was around the face type - maybe to make it language/character neutral? It reminds me of a kitchen timer.
