That headline-grabbing art-cafe on the Bowery, MoMaCha, is in hot water and will need to change its tune.

The unofficial neighborhood time-keeper forgot to wind its watch, so to speak. Red Square at 250 East Houston has yet to adjust its out-of-sequence rooftop clock back to Standard Time. Two weeks was a pretty fair grace period. Let’s see how long this lasts. The twin-clock itself was based on the “Askew” design of an […]
