Inside the Manhattan Art and Antiques Center, at the foot of a red velvet spiral staircase, lies Sundial NYC, a trove of antique clocks and timepieces. The store's decor evokes a well-upholstered, explorer chic: floor lights make the room glow and an ancient wooden globe sits on the floor. But most enchanting are the clocks themselves. Visitors are met with a chorus of ticks, tocs, and curious chimes, emanating from the clocks of every shape and size that cover the walls, shelves and floor space.
