15 Years Later, a Town Clock Was Installed

The clock had just been put in place when CTN walked by at 8 a.m.

It only took 15 years for the idea to become a reality. Today, at 6 a.m., December 20, a town clock was placed at the heart of the Palisades commercial business district.

P.R.I.D.E.’s Sam Rubin has championed this project from its inception. At one point, it seemed like the clock might go on Swarthmore in front of Baskin Robbins 31 Flavors, but when the block was sold to Caruso a new location had to be found.

This four-sided clock was manufactured by Electric Time Company in Medfield, Boston.

The clock is located by U.S. Bank parking lot entrance at the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Swarthmore Avenue.

This seems like this might be an ideal spot because cars will see it as they drive on Sunset. It is also visible from the Village Green and from stores on Swarthmore.

A dedication plaque will be installed, and a ceremony will take place in January acknowledging the individual and community organizations that made this project possible.

The clock has the correct time at dusk on a rainy evening.
