Gapstow Bridge over the 'Pond' in Central Park.
Gapstow Bridge is one of the many picturesque bridges in Central Park. Pretty in the summer covered in green foliage, autumnal in the fall, and in winter beautiful in the snow.
The original wooden bridge which crosses over the 'Pond' was first built in 1874, but had to be replaced because of ware and tear in1896, by the stone bridge which stands there today. It is situated at the corner of Central Park South and Fifth Avenue near the Plaza Hotel.
It offers a peaceful scenic sitting area close to the hustle and bustle of City life where by you can calmly observe the ducks and bird life.
