"This clock on a building at the corner of Forest and Metropolitan Avenues in Ridgewood had been an unofficial neighborhood landmark for decades.
Here is a closeup of what it looked like a few years back when Forgotten-NY had it featured on a page. Yikes...
Well, the building it was on is no longer extant. (The site is slated to become a Walgreens.) But what about the clock?
Luckily, yours truly noticed the clock was still hanging around, made a phone call, and a friend procured it from the demo company. There are plans to restore it to working condition and install it on another local building. If anyone knows a good coppersmith or clockmaker, we'd welcome your referrals." - anonymous
