Tour of Horological Society of New York
Learn about the Horological Society of New York’s evolution and its 155-year traditions with HSNY Executive Director Nicholas Manousos. Tour their watchmaking classroom and get a sneak peek at the archives, all located on Club Row in the heart of Midtown Manhattan.
- HSNY proudly houses the original watchmaking bench, tools and patents of Henry B. Fried (1907-1996), regarded as “the dean of American watchmakers” by The New York Times. Mr. Fried authored 14 books on watchmaking that continue to be in high demand and are used as textbooks in watchmaking institutions. He served as President of HSNY in the 1950s and the Henry B. Fried Scholarship for watchmaking students was established in his honor in 2017.
- When completed in 2022, HSNY’s research library will boast an extensive collection containing a selection of rare and important texts in the field of horology. A resource for watchmaking students and aficionados alike, HSNY will have one of the largest and most comprehensive horological libraries in the world, complemented by a digital cataloging system accessible worldwide.
- HSNY has been calling Midtown Manhattan home since 2018, more specifically the General Society Building. Located on “Club Row”, famously named due to a high concentration of clubs on the block (Harvard Club, New York Yacht Club and the Penn Club to name a few), HSNY’s monthly lectures by industry leaders take place downstairs in the General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen Library — the second-oldest continuously operating library in New York City. The General Society building exudes an authentic “old New York feel” where you might just spot famous actors filming scenes on any given day!
