Autumn in New York - Dora Sofia Caputo
I captured this image of Gapstow Bridge at Central Park, during a visit this Fall to that iconic place in New York City.
Curving gracefully over the neck of the Pond at 59th Street, Gapstow is one of the iconic bridges of Central Park. It is the second bridge on the site. The first, a much more elaborate wood and iron bridge, designed by Jacob Wrey Mould, deteriorated and was replaced in 1896.
The bridge offers postcard views of the surrounding cityscape. Facing south, you can see the famed Plaza Hotel and distinctive New York skyscrapers rising from above the Park's trees. Look southward in the winter and you'll see Wollman Rink's twirling skaters; in the warmer months you'll see the colorful amusements of Victorian Gardens.
Artist at Work in Central Park New York
I captured this image of an artist painting a landscape of the Central Park Bridge in New York City, on a walk the park last summer. It is very common in New York City and other places to find local artists crafting their work.
