Built in the 1870s, the castle now houses a weather station and the Henry Luce Nature Observatory. The Observatory displays exhibits on the park's ecology. The rooftop offers a spectacular view of the park, including the Great Lawn below, as well as the surrounding skyline of Midtown Manhattan. Admission is free.
