Gothic Bridge - Central Park, New York City, New York

    Newer Older

    Gothic Bridge, one of three cast iron bridges around the Reservoir.

    Built to carry recreational equestrian traffic in the park, as well as pedestrians. The triangular spaces at each end of Gothic Bridge (called spandrels) were given curved ironwork suggestive of Gothic church architecture of the Middle Ages, hence the bridge's name. The graceful curves and oval vault make Gothic one of the most distinctive bridges in the park.

    No two bridges in Central Park are the same.
