Balcony Bridge is currently closed for improvements. Pedestrians will be detoured.
Supporting the West Drive, this stately stone structure spans a small inlet connecting the Lake and what was originally the Ladies Pond, now Naturalists' Walk, which was filled in during the 1930s.
The bridge is named for the two bench-lined balconies on its east side – a spot that affords the most scenic view over the Lake toward the city skylines of Central Park South and Fifth Avenues. For a spectacular vantage point of the bridge itself, view it from the Ramble or from a rowboat on the Lake.
