The clock located at the top of the entrance still reminds folks if they are on time for work or the train. It’s a nod to the New York Central Railroad business and is nine feet wide. Mercury, representing transportation, sits on the winged wheel of progress on the left, and a goddess with a beehive, grape vines, and wheat sheaves represents industry on the right.
