A link to Belvedere Castle was e-mailed
New York, New York
Italian for “beautiful view,” Central Park’s Belvedere Castle delivers on its name, big time. Originally built as a “Victorian folly” -- a structure created to provide a beautiful backdrop, but without a real purpose -- the castle found its calling when the National Weather Service began putting its measurement tools on the turrets. Whether it’s raining or sunny, the castle’s 2 balconies are the perfect place to take in the Big Apple’s views.
