I think it’s best viewed from a knoll above it to the south. The bridge is painted in a light colour and looks for all the world as if it is made of carved stone. In fact, it was constructed using cast iron, way back...More

Bow bridge offers a great view over Manhattan. While passing by Central Park, you must go through the Bow Bridge. It is really beautiful and you can get a unique view over the city, while still enjoying the green side of it.
