5. Bow Bridge at Central Park

Neighborhood: Midtown East
Address: Mid-Park at 74th St.

The classically beautiful Bow Bridge spans over 60 feet of the soon-to-be-frozen lake, and offers magical views whether lingering on it or looking at it from afar. Covered in snow, the bridge is a  dream-like structure that makes you feel like you've somehow entered Narnia, despite the real world hovering at the periphery.
