After undergoing extensive repairs, the clock at the top of the Williamsburgh Savings Bank in Fort Greene reclaimed its place in the nighttime skyline over Brooklyn Tuesday night.
"Brooklyn has its wristwatch back!," said Harvey Kreiswirth, president of the board of One Hanson Place, in a release. "The residents and owners of One Hanson Place are proud to have fixed the clock, and are happy to provide this beacon for the whole city to enjoy."
The Williamsburgh Savings Bank building, which houses the One Hanson Place condominiums, was built from 1927-1929 by architects Halsey, McCormack and Helmer.
The bank was the tallest building in Brooklyn for more than 80 years, standing 37 stories high and 512-feet-tall. The clock tower remains among the tallest four-sided clock towers in the world.
