Description
The Clock on The Helmsley Building (formerly the New York Central Building) , erected in 1928 stands 68 feet above street level. The building stands on the corner of Park Avenue and 46th street in New York City.

Cut in limestone, the clock features two statues four times life size. The male figure on the left is Transportation. Transportation, who symbolizes the spirit of speed, rests his arm on a winged wheel of Progress and holds the staff of Mercury. On the right is a female figure, Industry, who embraces a staff in her arm, while resting on a beehive. Several other smaller symbolic figures round out the design including the Liberty Cap, crowning the clock's top. The clock, 45 feet in width and 19 feet high , has a dial which spans 9 feet in diameter.
