About Bethesda Terrace

Behold Bethesda Terrace, the heart of Central Park and arguably the most majestic spot in all of Manhattan's grand green oasis. With its elegant balustrades and grand staircases, the terrace is a masterpiece of 19th-century landscape design. 

Overlooking the Bethesda Fountain with its iconic Angel of the Waters statue, the terrace is a celebration of human creativity and natural beauty in perfect harmony. It's a place where city dwellers flock for solace, where street musicians add a soundtrack to the setting, and where every visitor finds themselves part of the park's living tableau. 

Whether it's the delicate mosaics under the arches or the panoramic view of the lake, Bethesda Terrace is a sensory feast and a photographer’s dream.
