The view of the harbor and from the Jersey boardwalk are beautiful but the clock with thr large Colgate sign is simply out of place. While the clock is large and noticeable, it would seem to fit better in an area such as Times Square...More

Great landmark. Glad they diddent destroy this old landmark. Best viewed from the water/boat. Or from manhattan. Nice when they have fireworks here.

If you are doing a nice waterfront walk its a good place to stop, sit, take a photo. But I suspect the photo angle is better from the water or manhattan.

This iconic factory clock can be seen from ferry boats, tour boats, or cruise ships. Nice landmark for a booming city.

Located along theharborside if you walk past the ferry terminals. Free. Nothing more to say, it has a plaque in situ

The iconic Colgate clock is sight to tick off but not worth a special trip. This end of Jersey City is not so great and the clock makes only for a quick detour from Exchange Place.

Not necessary to go over the other side to visit the clock as it is only a clock. But it's still a cool piece that they build a large enough clock accross the Hudson River overlooking Manhattan. Colgate advertising power I guess.

I saw this clock from Hudson river while returning from the Statue of Liberty. I was bit hazy still we could see it because of its big size diameter (50 feet). May be more attractive in night!

I'm quite certain it's a landmark of sorts, but it's really just a clock. A big one that's lit up at night, but still just a clock. However, it's placed along the boardwalk, which is definitely worth a visit, so you can kill two birds...More
