Photographer's Note

Bow Bridge is one of the most handsomely designed cast-iron bridges in the world.

It spans sixty feet across the Lake, linking the cultivated and flowering landscape of Cherry Hill with the rustic and sprawling woods of the Ramble.

Its proportions and sinuous length inspired one visitor to remark that the bridge looked "poured" over the Lake.

Bow Bridge owes its existence to Commissioner Dillon's desire for a suspension bridge; the designers compromised with a low-lying bridge. Named for its resemblance to an archer's bow, it immediately became one of Central Park's most cherished bridges. It continues to be the romantic setting for wedding proposals, classic film shoots, and the choice of many photographers who want to capture one of the signature design features of Central Park.
