West 65th Street Arch
This arch is the west side companion to a monstrous granite transverse arch on the east side of Central Park.
Both were built in the 1950s to accommodate the east west passage of transverse traffic with newly added access roads.
Devoid of the aesthetic complexity of the Park's other arches the West 65th Street Arch is valued for
its placement on the slope leading out to the 65th Street entrance.
