Unlike the Bethesda Fountain; the beauty of this relatively small Terrace was unexpected on our cycle through Central Park ... It's so clean, detailed and intricate - kinda like something you'd find in a French or English Palace ... The nearby buskers add to the thoughtful ambience ... Well worth stopping for a while and taking it all in 😌

Well,
This place is so special to me:- I had a chance to have an ice cream with my sister when I first visited to CP with her friend.

Secondly, the boating in the river looks amazingly well. I again got a chance this year summer. Attaching the photos of this year trip

Walked for around five hours before reaching, which was completely worth it even in the 90-degree+ heat. Magical architecture with paintings on the walls and ceilings, huge beautiful unraveling staircases on either side, large multi-cascading fountain holding plants growing within. A man serenaded us all within the tunnels with beautiful cello, and a woman sang lovely separately as well.

One of the best landmarks and photography spots in NYC. It gets overcrowded in the afternoons, so best time for photography sessions is in the mornings. The place looks magnificent in any weather.

The only issue is it is poorly maintained and rarely cleaned.

When I was in Thailand I saw Thai romantic-drama movie "February" and I thought I had to see it once in my life then I live in NY now and I saw the fountain from my own eyes. I keep going back to this fountain every time I go to Central park. It is gorgeous and very romantic. It looks different in every season.

Bethesda Terrace is another beautiful spot in a park filled with beautiful spots. The large fountain tends to dominate the area and draws huge crowds. The views from the stairs leading to the fountain are equally great and far less crowded. Just passed the fountain is also a treed area with wonderful lake views.

This is a very picturesque and iconic location. We've seen so many movies filmed here, so it was worth coming here. There was live music by independent performers. It is a very touristy spot but definitely worth coming here.
