Glade Arch (BIN 2246450)
Built in 1862 by Calvert Vaux
Stone arch pedestrian bridge (New Brunswick sandstone)
Separates two intersecting park paths just West of Fifth Avenue at 79th Street
This bridge used to carry a carriage path that linked East Drive with an entrance at 79th Street. The carriage path was converted to a pedestrian path, probably sometime in the early 20th century when carriages were outmoded by automobiles.
