The Loeb Boathouse is a Central Park icon and the place to go if you want to rent a boat or go for a ride with a gondola! Not only that, but the restaurant is one of the best and most famous all over New York! You’ve probably seen The Boathouse in movies like When Harry Met Sally or Manchurian Candidate.
Boating on The Lake traces its roots back to the 1860s. In 1872 Calvert Vaux answered the need
of a boathouse by creating a beautiful two-story Victorian building.
