Design of Herald Building

Herald Building was designed by architect Stanford White (1853-1906), inspired by the 1476 Venetian Renaissance Palazzo del Consiglio in Verona, Italy. The newspaper moved to this new headquarters in 1895 when the building was completed. The building was demolished in the 1920s and the group of bronze sculptures on the top of the building building was incorporated into the Bennett Memorial on Herald Square in 1940.

The clock and figures were installed on the monument and blacksmiths "Stuff and Guff" or "Gog and Magog" have chimed the hours ever since.
