We’ve learned that some damage came to the historic Steinway Street clock, thanks to a WHA reader, Costa’s office, and this tweet from CALDC:

Thank goodness no one was hurt, but what a serious bummer about the damage to the clock; we remember when it was reinstalled in 2008 after being away for repairs in MA. As mentioned in the CALDC tweet, repairs and reinstallation are in order. We’ve asked Costa’s office to keep us in the loop, and will bring you an update on the repairs when we get them.

Get well little clock! Here’s hoping the clock—landmarked in 1981—comes back looking like its beautiful old self.
