Brooklyn Clock Tower Penthouse

What time is it? Time to take a look at this spectacular clock tower triplex in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn. In case you were wondering, DUMBO is an acronym for District Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. This home is the most expensive condo in Brooklyn. It’s priced to move at $18 million. Sounds funny until you take a look inside and consider this home was listed for $25 million just four years ago. Triplex Clock Condo 1What makes this home truly exceptional is that there are working clocks on four faces of the apartment. Each of the clocks is in its own 14-foot-high round window, offering amazing views! There is also a three-story glass elevator. It’s visible on the right-hand side of the image above. Triplex Clock Condo 2

There is no need for art in this apartment, the clocks are like their own works for art. Lest you worry about the clocks showing different times, the four clocks are electronically synchronized to show exactly the same time. Triplex Clock Condo 4
