“Just a clock”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014

The area around the clock is under construction or some kind of renovation so you can not go close to it and even all pictures come out with the wired fence.

“eh”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014

Was staying at the Hyatt Regency at Exchange Place and took a walk one night. Passed by the 9/11 tribute and came upon this. Nothing to go out of your way for specifically. But if you are taking a stroll around Exchange Place at night - which provides one of the best views of the NYC skyline - it's worth the extra few steps to walk down and check this out lit up at night.

“If you're there”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

While on the Jersey City waterfront you can't skip over the Colgate Clock. The entire waterfront walkway is great and this is particularly a sight at night.

“What the heck is it?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

The waterfront walkway all along this area of Jersey City is really beautiful, but this clock is just weird. It's more of an eyesore in my opinion.

“Nostalgic nod to Colgate's past”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

Historic giant clock serves as icon on the Hudson River (NJ side). Colgate used to have its HQ in Jersey City (long ago) but now the clock sits near Goldman Sachs. The same man maintained it for 40 years until he retired....don't count on the exact time (or you will miss the ferry) but it's a nice landmark.
