Which Spot In Central Park Was Voted Most Romantic?


As the snow falls heavily in Manhattan, I received an update from the Central Park Conservancy. Reminding me of Valentines Day (note to self: Send flowers to Les),  I did wonder which was the most romantic spot in Central Park.

The answer? Bow Bridge. Check this and see what so many have said about Bow Bridge. Even in  the snow of winter! Or read about Central Park’s most romantic stories

The story behind Bow Bridge…

  • Named for its resemblance to a violinist’s or archer’s — or Cupid’s — bow, Bow Bridge’s dreamy setting over the sprawling Lake has inspired many a lovers’ stroll.
  • Designed by Central Park co-designer Calvert Vaux and his assistant Jacob Wrey Mould and built in 1862, Bow Bridge is the second-oldest cast-iron bridge in the United States. The Bridge spans 60 feet across the Lake, linking the cultivated and flowering landscape of Cherry Hill with the rustic and sprawling woods of the Ramble.
  • Bow Bridge is one of the most photographed spots in the Park and is provides the romantic backdrop for many wedding proposals and classic film shots.

Don’t worry spring is on the way…
