We can't believe we're saying this... but Penn Station just got more beautiful, thanks to the installation of a new permanent artwork by Diana Al-Hadid inspired by Alfred Eisenstadt's iconic 1943 photograph of the famous clock that used to hang at the entrance of the original transportation hub.
An iconic clock once hung at the former entrance to New York City’s lost McKim, Mead, and White-designed Penn Station. In her most recent 15 feet high and 14 feet wide glass mosaic, entitled The Time Telling, artist Diana Al-Hadid recreates this famous clock, giving life to a piece of forgotten New York history.
Al-Hadid’s new mosaic features the famed clock that hung at the entrance of the original station until the building was demolished in the 1960s.
