My Review: Visiting to the Bow Bridge, Central Park, New York City, New York is a lovely experience. Amidst the calm and quite natural settings, the bow bridge is a gorgeous work of art. Beneath the bridge you can see the couples and families sailing boats. Everything is so melodious here. I saw a guitarist playing his guitar sitting by the bridge. While walking across the bridge, I saw the urns and pose for a pic. These urns add the real elegance to the bridge. To look at the bridge and its beautiful natural surrounding, I went to its opposite side where you can see the whole view from a lovely little hut. While approaching towards that little hut, I heard two singers standing there and play guitars with the tune of  Christina Perri’s “A thousand years” which happens to be one of my all times favorite songs.
