Charming place, this fountain and its nearby stairs and lake are amazing. Great for photos, to relax, to watch the ducks at the lake and to appreciate the view. Another great place inside Central Park. Buy yourself an ice-cream, sit by the water and enjoy the view!

Was just here again today - my favorite spot in Central Park. We did our engagement pictures here on a sunny day, while today was cloudy, yet regardless of the weather it's a really lovely spot. Be sure to check out Bethesda Terrace with the tiled ceiling and domed archway, it's so beautiful.

We sought this fountain out after seeing it on so many movies, and she's even more beautiful in real life. There was a band playing in the covered courtyard when we first found her, which made the experience even happier....don't know who they were, but their rendition of "You Raise Me Up" was as good as any version I've ever heard, they were brilliant.
We returned later in the holiday with a picnic, and spent a lovely afternoon there, it's a great place to relax, people watch and just enjoy the beautiful architecture all around you.

I have seen this on so many movies and it didn't disappoint in person. Walk the area, see the tiled roofs, note the architecture. Even grab coffee or a sandwich and enjoy Manhattan:)
