An Art Deco clock on Lexington Avenue

The forearms of time stretch out above this sleek corner clock, which adorns the General Electric building at 570 Lexington Avenue.

Completed in 1931, the 50-story building was originally meant to be the headquarters for RCA.

But GE moved in a few years later, making some design changes—such as turning what was supposed to be a globe with an electric bolt running through it into one very cool clock.
