Inscope Arch is actually one of the "newer" arches in Central Park. It was built a good ten years after most of the other ones.

The archway is Tuscan, i.e. the outside arch comes to a point at the top, and is round at the bottom.

Inscope has a considerable foundation because it was built on a swamp. It has timber sub-flooring.

Location: takes East Drive over park path near The Pond. Built: 1873 by Vaux. Made of granite.
