Like its sisters, Eaglevale and Claremont, Mountcliff Arch was built to accommodate increasing population on the upper east side that wanted access to the park interior. This is the hilliest section of Central Park. Mountcliff is the park's highest arch at 48 feet.
Location: takes park path under East Drive as it intersects Central Park West and 110th Street. Built: 1890. Made of gneiss and ashlar.
