The Loeb Boathouse Central Park, New York , NY
Designed to beautifully coexist with its natural surroundings, The Loeb Boathouse is the only Manhattan venue right on a lake—allowing you to host your wedding, Bar or Bat Mitzvah, or corporate event in spectacular fashion. While you’re here, why not join a 150-year-old tradition and explore the lake in a rented rowboat. Better yet, take a ride in an authentic Venetian gondola. With any luck, your gondolier might even break into song. Also, listen for the calls of many indigenous birds, as The Loeb Boathouse is a haven for avid birdwatchers. Proof can be found in the official “Bird Register,” an unpretentious 2-inch loose-leaf notebook where observations are recorded.
