This past Saturday, I spent the time before our Central Park Photo Safari in the North Woods section of the Park. I’d never been there in all my time tramping around the Park… I guess it’s all been below 96th Street.
This is Glen Span Arch, a stone bridge by Calvert Vaux and built in 1866 to carry horse-and-carriage traffic on West Drive – still in service to this day, but carrying much heavier loads.
The 14-foot waterfall in the background is Glen Span Cascade. Like most of the Park, the Cascade was carefully designed and constructed to mimic nature.
