Daylight Saving Time 2022 Begins on Sunday, March 13th ~ It’s Time to Spring Forward

 

 

The Wizard of Park Avenue

Daylight Saving Time 2022 begins this weekend on Sunday, March 13 when clocks “spring forward” an hour, meaning we get one less hour of sleep overnight.

We are clock-watching this morning at 470 Park Avenue South at 32nd Street, underneath The Wizard of Park Avenue.

In a surprise move, the U.S. Senate passed legislation on March 15, 2022 that would make daylight saving time permanent starting in 2023, ending the twice-annual changing of the clocks.

The Senate approved the measure, called the Sunshine Protection Act, unanimously by voice vote.  Now the House of Representatives must pass the bill and the President must sign.

The historic Clock in the lobby of The Waldorf Astoria

Daylight Saving Time 2022 begins this weekend on Sunday, March 13 when clocks “spring forward” an hour, meaning we get one less hour of sleep overnight.

This particular clock graced the lobby of the Waldorf Astoria until it closed for renovations. It is a nine-foot-tall, two-ton World’s Fair Clock Tower from the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago. The base of the clock is octagonal and holds eight commemorative plaques of presidents.

The Waldorf Astoria Clock Tower recently underwent a restoration and is on view at the New York Historical Society until the Waldorf renovations are complete.
