Belvedere Castlel

This is the only place in New York that offers a panoramic view of ?Central Park. The view of the Great Lawn from the castle’s upper ?terrace is absolutely splendid. Turtle Pond, just below, is home to many wild turtles. Standing atop Vista Rock, the castle was completed in 1872. It was used as an observatory by the US Weather Bureau from 1919 to the 1960’s. It was renovated and reopened to the public in 1982.
