Fulton Street

#12 (near the entrance to South Street Seaport Museum; corner of Pearl Street)

One of the few remaining time-balls in the country sits atop of the Titanic Memorial Lighthouse at South Street Seaport.  The current memorial is a replica of a lighthouse originally erected in 1913 on the roof of the old Seaman’s Church Institute at the corner of South Street and Coenties Slip as a memorial to those who lost their life on the steamship Titanic.  From 1913 to 1967, the time-ball descended on the pole to signal noon to the ships in the harbor.  Like the ball on the Western Union building, the Titanic’s ball was activated by a telegraphic signal from the National Observatory.  In 1968 the Seaman’s church moved and the lighthouse was donated to the South Street Seaport, overhauled and erected at it current location at the entrance way to the Seaport.

Con Edison.

For Con Edison’s headquarters at the corner of 14th Street and Irving Place, the noted architectural firm of Warren & Wetmore designed a 26-story tower. Capping the tower are four clock faces. The top of the tower is a “temple” crowned by a 38-foot-high bronze lantern. Known as the “Tower of Light,” the tower, completed in 1928, was dedicated to the 3,053 employees who served in World War I and especially as a memorial to the 74 who perished in that conflict. The largest bell in the clock tower is inscribed with a stanza from Ralph Waldo Emerson’s Concord Hymn.

In 2008, Con Edison updated the tower lighting system with new, energy efficient LEDs. The new system uses 63 percent less energy than conventional lights and the lights have an expected lifespan of 15 years.
