The Gapstow Bridge and The Pond are the added attractions of Central Park and were designed 125 years ago. A very good example of the traditional architecture of Central Park, the Gapstow was a wooden bridge that was supported by railings made of cast iron. But later it was converted into a stone bridge in the year 1896. The pond under the bridge adds the perfect amount of beauty to the strong looking bridge, marking the balance between both the structures that have stood the test of time. A must visit for all those visiting the magnificent Central Park.
Larger-than-life billboards, the collective flicker and flash of neon lights, mesmerizing digital screens and a famously atmospheric spirit sum up the allure of the bustling Times Square. Christened after the New York Times, which moved its office to this location in 1924, the vibrant milieu of this busy square deeply echoes the city's ethos. Riveting Broadway marquees, a diverse set of shops, restaurants of every type and stripe, and towering buildings beyond vie for attention. Somewhere amid a sea of tourists who are likely making their way to the iconic red steps for panoramic views of this spectacle, a big crimson tourist bus inches its way toward the next monumental attraction. Meanwhile, longstanding fixtures of this place contribute to its hugely legendary status, from the Coca-Cola sign, the colossal M&Ms World store and Times Square Studios, to the TKTS booth, the Hard Rock Cafe, and Planet Hollywood.

Tucked discretely on a foot path near the East Drive of Central Park, Balto, the heroic sled dog that launched the Iditarod, stands guard. Commemorating the malamute that led a sled team to Nome, Alaska in order to prevent a diptheria outbreak in 1924, the statue was commissioned by a group of dog lovers seeking to pay tribute to the pooch's heroic deeds. Surrounded by the lush flora of the park, the Balto statue is a great place for families to unwind between walks.
