This part of Central Park was originally landscaped to evoke winter, with evergreens planted on each side of the arch.
In the 1990s cast iron railings were installed to approximate the originals, which had been replaced with cheap metal piping and chain links.

Location: takes West Drive over bridle path at about 82nd Street. Built: 1860-1861 by Vaux. Made of Maine granite and sandstone with cast iron railings.
