  • Central Park: Bow Bridge
    A short walk northwest of Bethesda Fountain is Bow Bridge, a pretty cast-iron crossing whose gentle arc gives it its name. As you approach the bridge from the southeast, you’ll see the two towers of the San Remo building. Your first impulse might be to shoot the San Remo from the foot of the bridge itself, but if you step off the path there’s a little outcropping into the lake that allows you to frame the bridge and the San Remo together—and if you wait long enough on a nice day, a rowboat or two. It’s one of the more iconic images of the park.
