According to the idea of landscape designers, the contrast of proximity to the noisy 5th Avenue and absolutely calm corner of nature should not leave anyone indifferent. In principle, it is. Once you get to the Park from 5th Avenue and a completely different world opens before your eyes. And if you look back or look ahead beyond the pond, you can see skyscrapers. This combination of almost incongruous is fascinating.
Perhaps one of the most famous bridges in Central Park, the Gapstow bridge, crosses the pond. The Gapstow bridge in Central Park is a stone bridge built in Central Park in 1896. This is certainly one of the Park's business cards
it is also one of the most romantic places in the Park. Basically, only beloved people meet here. This is one of those places that can easily calm a person, it is insanely beautiful. The idea of a pond with a bridge is borrowed from Italy. Gapstow is one of Central Park's iconic bridges. Originally designed by Jacob ray Mold in 1874, the then-wooden bridge with cast-iron railings has been severely damaged over 20 years. In 1896, it was replaced by an existing stone structure designed by Howard & Caudwell.
Initially, the bridge was made of wood, but after 20 years of severe wear and tear, it had to be replaced with a stone one.
Behind it, you can also find the no less famous rink Wallman (Wallman rink), but about everything in order.
