Club Row, a street in New York where the past lives on, recently welcomed The Horological Society of New York (HSNY), housed in the General Society building, to the area. This is the first permanent office and classroom for HSNY. Inside, there are six state-of-the-art watchmaking benches, with classes held every Tuesday and Thursday night for interested students. This space also houses the Horological Society’s library and doubles as an office for the HSNY team.
Horological enthusiasts will also be delighted to learn that the office has the original bench and tools of Henry B. Fried, called the “dean of American watchmakers” in The New York Times’ obituary. There is also a $10,000 scholarship in Fried’s name for students who exemplify his values.
