This bronze piece at the entrance to the Loeb Boathouse restaurant commemorates the benefactors, Carl and Adeline Loeb. They donated $305,000 to replace the old wooden boathouse that had stood nearby.

 

Rowing a boat has always been a favorite pastime in Central Park. The original wooden boathouse, which was located where rowboats are rented now, provided shelter and services such as snacks and areas to change clothes. In the winter it was a warm place to view ice skaters on the frozen Lake.
