It is unique in the world, the largest analog clock anywhere (even Big Ben is smaller) and it still works. Fortunately for me, it is outside my apartment. It lights up JC when I am on my way home on the ferry.

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

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