A street clock or post clock is a clock mounted on top of a post typically installed in a streetscape or other urban or park setting.

A less common kind of street clock can be found on Maiden Lane in Manhattan, New York. In the late 19th century, William Barthman Jewelers had a clock embedded in the sidewalk.[1][2] The clock remains visible and maintained As of 2014.[1]
