Delacorte Music Clock in Central Park in New York City, NY

81 Central Park West New York, NY 10023
The Delacorte Music Clock, located near the Children's Zoo and Wildlife Center, is a great attraction for kids. Playing music every half hour from 8am until 5pm daily, it plays a total of 44 songs that change with the season, including classic children's tunes such as "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star," "Hickory Dickory Dock," "Old King Cole," and "Row, Row, Row Your Boat."

The Music Clock was modeled after the musical clocks that George T. Delacorte saw while travelling in Europe. The whimsical, bronze animal sculptures that adorn the Clock were created by sculptor Andrea Spadini, and include a goat playing the pipes, a kangaroo playing horns, a penguin on drums, a bear with a tambourine, and a hippo playing the violin.

The Clock's usual repertoire of songs changes to a collection of Christmas carols around the holiday season.
