  • Great statue fir all you alice fans. Very popular with kids of all ages as when i went to visit there was about 20 teenagers on a field trip taking their turn posing for pic on the statue.  more »
  • The sculpture was built in 1959 by Joseph of Creeft under the commission of George Delacorte so that children could visit and experience the wonder of Lewis Carroll's classic history. Children climb and play on the statue. In fact, over the decades, thousands of hands and feet have literally polished parts of the smooth statue's surface.

  • A beautiful statue set in Central Park NYC and a great photo opportunity! The area around the statue could have been better kept (the planting had been let-go somewhat) with quite a few weeds in the surrounding hedgerows and borders. The statue is directly next to the model boating pond, where you can hire toy boats to sail... A lovely family activity. The boat house had absolutely lovely plants and flowers - which served to distinguish between the statue area further.
  • Very nice statue, more so a playground for the children. They have benches all around, so you can easily watch the kids as they enjoy themselves. A big bronze statue to admire, all the hard workmanship put into it. But overall, not a must-see in my opinion when you visit New York, but worth visiting if you're in the area.
