Today I was supposed to get married at the Loeb Boathouse. Unfortunately given the present situation the city finds itself in, that’s not going to happen. That said, here’s a little history of this great landmark that will hopefully be up and running again soon. This is the third boathouse that has existed in the park with the current version constructed in 1954. Boating became popular in the park in the 1860s. Initially boats were stored on Bethesda Terrace. However with so many boats, a better solution was needed. The first boathouse was built in 1874 by Calvert Vaux, the co designer of the park. It was redesigned in 1924 and replaced by the current building in 1954. Although the building itself is not a landmark, Central Park is, and was designated as such on April 16th, 1974.
I still got married yesterday so I’m taking the caption easy today. This is a full view of the stables on 69th between Lexington and 3rd. They were all built in the second half of the 19th century for wealthy residents of 5th Avenue. You can learn more by looking at my posts from the end of April which go into more individual detail. Meanwhile I’m going back to bed. They were landmarked as a part of the Upper East Side Historic District on May 19th, 1981.
