GMT time in London...

Hey everyone,

Steve tuning in...

If it's 4PM in London, my guess is that the GMT time for London would be 16:00:00.

Since the eastcoast of USA has a -5 GMT, I would trust, NYC GMT time would be 11:00:00.

Am I in the ball park as they say?

I'm pretty sure that's right. Here in Chicago (CST), it'll be at 10:00am.

Greenwich is a place in London. Greenwich Mean Time is the time in London. Presumably NYC is US Atlantic time? which as you say is GMT-5. There is no GMT anywhere but along the line that runs south from Greenwich round the world. init

I didn't really know that it (not meaning GMT) was a leftover from the WWII, but it certainly is still able to fool most people. The clock is put one hour forward during summer time. Spring forward - fall back, that always helps me to remember how to set my watch.
