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.
