This sandstone-and-brick arch stands at the East Drive between the Mall and Fifth Avenue and leads visitors to the bronze statue of Balto, the celebrated Alaskan sled dog. It bears a striking resemblance to Driprock Arch, its counterpart at the Center Drive.
Willowdell features rusticated voussoirs, or wedge-shaped stones, and bench seating in the arcade walls of the underpass. A center niche once contained a fountain, meant to give mothers a place to sit and rest with their children. In 1862, Central Park’s key architects were photographed standing atop thei arch, against its cast-iron railing: Frederick Law Olmsted, Jacob Wrey Mould, Andrew H. Green, George E. Waring, Jr. and Ignaz A. Pilat.

This is a very good presentation of this arch with good deepness and movement. I like the cyclist you included on top and also the yellow colored trees that frame the arch.
Have a great day

On voit souvent cette arche dans les films et dans les séries télé. Elle est bien mise en valeur entre les passants et les cyclistes.

in this pretty taking we can enjoy fantastic mood primaveral this beautiful bridge in Central Park, which I have in my memories.
I like the light and the vivid colors of the trees that surround the small arc of the bridge, and the dynamism and the vitality that the people that pass through the bridge provide.
I remember the beautiful sculpture of the Balto dog perfectly.
A beautiful shot.

Have a good week,danos

Namaskar dear Lakshmi
Another interesting and little known place. The colours are beautiful and you have managed the light so well, even through the tunnel and beyond, we are able to see everything perfectly. A delightful photo, thanks for sharing.

Great and colorful capture of the Central Park in Spring with yellow plants at the FG, the charming arch and people to add a human touch
Well done TFS
Interesting and informative note

I know this location well, used to take a stroll there very often, Lakshmi.
I enjoy seeing the beauty of the place remained the same after so many years (since 1978), and the image is vivid and vibrant, as people yet to hike the park, and here we see motions on bridge and under.
Have a nice weekend,

Very nice play of colors in this image (the central red and yellow side of the plants). Excellent choice to put the people who gives life and movement to 'image.
The best greetings, have a nice sunday ... Marino
