Built in 1862 by Calvert Vaux and Jacob Wrey Mould
Stone arch vehicle bridge (granite - from a quarry in Seal Harbor, ME - and red brick)
Carries Center Drive over a park path leading to the Artisan's Gate at 7th Avenue and 59th Street
This bridge allows pedestrians to bypass Center Drive, which can be quite busy during running or bike races or at rush hour. The path leads to Heckscher Playground and used to cross Spur Rock Arch, which was destroyed by Robert Moses in 1938 to permit expansion of Heckscher Playground.
