Cool Shade Under Glen Span

The Glen Span Arch Bridge is in the Northwest corner of Central Park. It was built by Calvert Vaux in 1865 of light-colored gneiss rock. As there was a blazing sun, this lady stopped to rest in the cool shade under the bridge.


Central Park is a large park (843 acres, 3.41 sq, km) in midtown Manhattan. Established in 1857, it was designed by Frederick Law Olmstead (American) and Calvert Vaux (English). Central Park, visited by over 37.5 million people annually, offers almost every type of outdoor activity.
