The Chase Manhattan Bank Building, also known as the Queens Clock Tower, is a 14-story (54 meters or 178 feet) office building located at 29-27 41st Avenue, at the northeast end of Queens Plaza in Long Island City, Queens, New York City. It was completed in 1927 as the Bank of the Manhattan Company Building,[1] and was the tallest office building in Queens until the completion of the Citicorp Building in 1990. The building is architecturally similar to the Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower in Brooklyn.

On May 12, 2015 it was designated a city landmark by the New York City Landmarks Commission.

The building is directly adjacent to the N and W trains.
