the year our ClockTower was built

ClockTowerTenants has reached a milestone,
 almost 150,000 page views in 1886 posts. 

Other interesting things happened in 1886, too.

The first Mercedes Benz was patented by Karl Benz.


An international copyright agreement called The Berne Convention put “The Pirate Publisher” on notice.

Coca Cola was launched with real cocaine by John Pemberton, a pharmacist in Georgia.


Grover Cleveland was our President.

The first trainload of fresh oranges left Los Angeles for New York on the transcontinental railroad.


After almost 30 years of fighting, famous native American Geronimo finally surrendered in Arizona.


The Statue of Liberty was dedicated in New York harbour.

Iconic architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was also born in 1886.

If you live in the ClockTower, 
your loft has witnessed 127 years of south Bronx history.

And have a great weekend!
