Remember how the clock outside Trader Joe's in Downtown Brooklyn was only right twice a day? Well, now it's right all the time, according to Lost City. "The Brooklyn branch of the hipster supermarket has finally mended the double-sided clock on the outside corner of the old Independence Bank Building which Joe's calls home. It had stopped working some after Independence moved out. A Joe's spokesman had said earlier that he expected it to be running by the end of October. And here it is Oct. 31 and it's running!" We love a happy ending. [Lost City; Curbed]
