Clock Tower

Located on the eastern edge of Madison Square Park.
Topped by a cupola of Italian gold leaf and soaring to a height of 700 feet.
Completed in 1909, The Clock Tower was the world’s tallest building until eclipsed by the Woolworth Building in 1913. It was designed by Napoleon LeBrun, who based his design on Venice’s Campanile di San Marco.
The clocks themselves are some of the largest four-dial timepieces in the world.
