781 Fifth Avenue Sidewalk Clock

The ornate cast iron sidewalk clock at 781 Fifth Avenue was manufactured by the E. Howard Clock Company; it was presumably installed in 1927 when the Sherry Netherland Hotel was built, although its design suggests the whimsicality of the 19th Century.  The flower-basket is a particularly pleasant touch.

This is the northernmost of Fifth Avenue’s sidewalk clocks.
