This site serves as a portrait and archive of Johnny Votta, who was known by many as The Timekeeper. Everyday at exactly two o’clock he aggressively commanded the same intersection on Washington Square Park, NYC—belting out the time and forcing pedestrians and cars to stop and go. Although his self-appointed job was questionable by most passersby he was content with his niche in the community and lived a strong life as one of New York City's most interesting characters. Johnny passed away sometime in October, 2012. May he rest in peace.
