This is one of the group of nationally significant cast iron arch bridges in Central Park. More cast iron arch bridges can be found in Central Park than in the rest of the country combined. This bridge has a very shallow arch design compared to the other cast iron bridges in the park. Today, the bridge crosses a path that dead-ends almost immediately southeast of the bridge, terminating in a cul-de-sac that offers excellent views of one of the most unique and prolific features of Central Park: steel wire fencing. Central Park has to be the most fenced in park in the world, it often feels like you are walking in a zoo.
