The very first Central Park commission was appointed between 1857 and 1870. This park has so much history to it and really takes you away from the hustle and bustle we know New York City can be. There are so many adventures here from the Zoo, Walking Tours, Pedicab Tours, Bike Rentals and Tours just to name a few.

the gorgeous Bethesda Fountain
I just love this ceiling of Bethesda Terrace which was restored in 2007. While the conservancy restored as many tiles as possible, there were some tiles that were damaged beyond repair. The new tiles were manufactured by hand by Maw and Company in England. Of the 15,876 original tiles that were removed, only about 10% needed to be fully replaced. The ceiling of the arcade has 49 panels, each with 324 tiles. The restoration was eventually completed at a cost of $7 million.
