Colgate Clock

Colgate Clock Photo Op
Let Hollywood keep its famous sign; Jersey City has the Colgate Clock.

Visible from Manhattan, Staten Island, and The Bronx, the clock, which lights up at night, is a decade shy of its centenary and is one of the few remaining reminders of the city's industrial past. Now known as the producer of a popular toothpaste, Colgate once manufactured the laundry soap, Octagon, which inspired the shape of the clock. Head down to the clock (which is a bit south of the Goldman Sachs Tower) just before dusk: the sun sets behind the clock and autumn sunsets along the Hudson are often epic.
