(CNN) — One of New York City’s most iconic landmarks, Central Park’s Loeb Boathouse, will close this fall.
Owner of the restaurant and event space, Dean J. Paul filed paperwork with the City of New York indicating his intention to close the business.
The boathouse itself, however, will not be closed. The present building, which was built in 1954, belongs to the city.
Central Park is owned by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, but is managed day-to-day by the Central Park Conservancy.
Within the park are many famous and frequently photographed landmarks, including the Alice in Wonderland statue and the Delacorte Theatre, Shakespeare’s home in the park.
However, Boathouse stood out even among that group. It is a popular filming location, with scenes from movies and TV shows such as “Sex and the City,” “When Harry Met Sally” and “The Manchurian Candidate.”
She added that they are also working with people who have booked future events such as weddings at the boathouse “in good faith.”
The Boathouse isn’t the only New York City attraction to shutter since the coronavirus pandemic began in 2020.
