Greaser on a Clock.

Greaser on a Clock

There is a non-working clock with a statue of a rockabilly greaser on top of it, outside of an attorneys' office.

[Melissa, 08/06/2012]

Some say that the statue is supposed to depict James Dean, others claim Jack Kerouac (who's rumored to have written "On The Road" while living nearby). Whoever he is, he's off the road and chained to the building.
