With a name that means "beautiful view" in Italian, the castle is a wonderful place to take in the city.
Located in Central Park, this structure looks like something out of a Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale. The castle is a hybrid blend of Gothic and Romanesque architecture, and it was built using both granite and schist stones. The terraces of this faux-medieval structure also offer spectacular views. Originally constructed in 1870, the Belvedere underwent a restoration and a subsequent re-opening in 1983.
Also here is the Henry Luce Nature Observatory, a hands-on exhibit that teaches guests about the variety of flora and fauna in the park.
