  1. Hi James,
    My name is Dede Osserman Tanzer. My grandmother, Lucy Goldschmidt Moses, paid to rebuild Bow Bridge when it had fallen to disrepair. She received the first Frederick Law Olmstead award given by New York for her work.
    We were raised calling it Grandma’s bridge.
    I’ve just been going her things and decided to educate myself about it further and came across your posting. I actually have a few photos of the ribbon cutting. If you ever happen to be around Delray Beach, FL let me know…if you’re interested.
    Best regards,

    1. What an amazing story Dede – thanks so much for sharing it. It’s such a wonderful bridge!

    2. Dede, I’m the author of The Central Park Lost Mitten Party (which has great notes about the Park, including Bow Bridge). Amazingly, I am often in Delray Beach and would love to be in touch with you. BTW, I am doing a second signing of the book at FAO Schwarz 12-14-2019, 49th & 5th, Rockefeller Center if you are in town!!
