The Delacorte Clock. This was added some 30 years after the New Deal, but it has New Deal roots: One of its designers was Edward Coe Embury, son of the 1934 zoo's prolific chief architect Aymar Embury II. On the hour, the animals below start dancing around the clock while the monkeys above strike the bell.
