    Central Park may boast nearly 30 statues, but none are as fun to climb on as Jose de Creeft's Alice, which has been charming NYC's children and childlike adults since 1959. Read more

    "Will you walk a little faster? said a whiting to a snail." Catch the delightful little fellow hanging out under the edge of Alice's mushroom. No hustle and bustle here - slow down and enjoy Tea Time.

    The plaque reads “In Memory of My Wife, Margarita Delacorte, Who Loved All Children.” Not only must all children love Alice but when they go to the Park they must love Mrs. Delacorte, too. Read more

    It's a statue depicting the characters in the book Alice in Wonderland. It's a little off the main paths, but well worth the walk, or take a bike there, it's beautiful. Read more

    You could bring wine and cheese for an adult tea party on one of the many benches surrounding the statue.

    I FREAKING LOVE THIS SCULPTURE! Excuse me for yelling, but I was so excited to see this one on a cold but sunny day. Snow everywhere but no other people! Amazing.

    The plaques around the statue are excerpts from the poem "The Jabberwocky" by Lewis Carroll, and one of Margarita Delacorte's favorite poems.

    We hoofed it up here from Rock Center only to find it closed while it was receiving its biannual cleaning.

    Before 9 a.m., dogs are allowed to roam free in Central Park. That has spawned gatherings of unleashed canines like the Norwich terriers that regularly get together with their owners at this statue. Read more

    Puedes subirte a la falda a hacerte una foto! Es preciosa. Y está justo al lado del conservatory park donde la gente lleva sus barquitos teledirigidos. La de Hans Christian Andersen está cerca también
