This iconic bridge curves gracefully over the neck of the Pond at 59th Street. Gapstow is the second bridge on the Central Park site. The first, a much more elaborate wood and iron bridge, designed by Jacob Wrey Mould, deteriorated and was replaced in 1896. Dazzling views of the surrounding cityscape can be seen from this bridge including the Plaza Hotel and New York's skyscrapers and in the winter, look southward to see Wollman Rink's twirling skaters. In warmer months you can see the Victorian Gardens.
