6. Behind the Tiffany Clock

Measuring in at thirteen feet in diameter, the clock that crowns the exterior facade of Grand Central Terminal is the largest Tiffany clock in the world. Access to the clock for maintenance and cleaning is obtained by going up a very narrow staircase that leads to a small space behind the clock face. In order to clean the front face of the clock, the pane of glass with the numeral six opens up like a window. This also provides a unique view of Park Avenue for those select few who get to look out of it.
