One Hanson Place Update: Willie Can't Tell Time

An avid Brooklyn bicyclist and friend of this space writes:

Has Curbed (or anyone else) investigated why the Williamsburgh Savings Bank Building clock tower is displaying the wrong time? Not just off by a minute or two, but wrong by many hours. And the different faces of the tower are displaying radically different times. I noticed this last week, and again today while I was biking home. This is supremely annoying in a way that is hard to explain!So how long has this been going on Willie? Have all those mercury fumes started to mess with the machinery? Where's that superhero Dig when you need him?
