Gapstow Bridge NYC

Original Painting - Acrylic on canvas 16x12
This famous bridge in central park has delighted visitors from around the world. The backdrop of New York City with lights gleaming is a pleasure to paint and I have painted it numerous times.

Curving gracefully over the narrow neck of the Pond at 59th Street, Gapstow is one of the iconic bridges of Central Park. Design aficionados might notice a striking resemblance to the Ponte di San Francesco in San Remo, Italy.
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.
