Curving gracefully over the neck of the Pond at 59th Street, Gapstow Bridge is one of the iconic bridges of Central Park. It is the second bridge on the site. The first, a much more elaborate wood and iron bridge, designed by Jacob Wrey Mould, deteriorated and was replaced in 1896.
The snow in the movie is real snow. Snow machines were used for some scenes, but a blizzard flooded the set before the shoot, causing more snow to fall than they expected.
