This is the most distinctive and graceful cast-iron bridge surrounding the Reservoir.
Situated near the North Gatehouse at 94th Street, this beautifully curved bridge embraces the bridle path with true elegance.
Newly named the "Gothic Bridge" due to its lace cutout design, which conforms to the oval contours of the arc. An elaborate floral decor adorns the interior of the curves. The abutments are of Manhattan schist from the Park while the foot path is a wooden construct.
