Although the original purpose was to save on the cost of stone and masons, the feature that makes the Bow Bridge different from the other attractions of Central Park is that it is built almost entirely of cast iron. It has a subdued natural beauty in its carefully crafted and filigreed design. Covering an expanse of sixty feet over the lake, the bridge provides an excellent view of the East Side and the park surrounding it. The picturesque Fifth Avenue skyline to the west is also at a great vantage point and the romantic moments spent here can be etched forever in your memory. A great site for those looking for architectural marvels, in addition to the bridge, take a look at the twin turrets of the San Remo Apartments to the east; the bridge also serves as an entrance into the popular Ramble of Central Park.
