Quantcast

With so many buildings  in the NYC skyline demanding our attention, we rarely train our eyes to the drab concrete and subway grates beneath our feet. But the city sidewalks also have much to offer. From a floating subway map etched in the ground to the ruins of the city’s first tavern, these five sidewalk spots make it worth watching your step next time you’re trying to dodge the crowds.

1. The Maiden Lane Clock

Next time you’re in the Financial District, if you happen to find yourself on the corner of Maiden Lane and Broadway, look down! You’ll find a beautiful (and working) clock beneath your feet, a sidewalk advertisement for William Barthman Jewelers located a few steps away. The store has been there for over 130 years, surviving multiple attempts at gentrification–so give them some credit and watch your step!
