A favorite for cinematographers and a whimsical haven for many wedding parties to take their own photos, Bethesda Terrace is one of the most sought after places in Central Park . The lower terrace is home to the famous Bethesda Fountain , designed by Emma Stebbins in 1868 and the upper terrace is where you can hop on a horse carriage or get a better view of Angel of Waters atop the fountain. The terrace also serves as an entrance point to the Ramble, the Mall or the Naumburg Bandshell . Ultimately, this place is an idyllic getaway from the tumult in the streets and it is sure to please those looking for a short stroll across the park as well as those who want to revel in sheer photographic pleasure.
