Bethesda Terrace Arcade In Central Park
Photograph - Photography
The gorgeous Minton tiles within the Bethesda Terrace Arcade brilliantly glow in the reflected morning light in New York City's Central Park.
Bethesda Terrace Arcade is the arched, interior walkway in the center of the park that links the Mall to Bethesda Fountain and the Central Park Lake. Created in the 1860s, the Arcade features a stunning tiled ceiling and was designed by Jacob Wrey Mould. (Information obtained from centralpark.com)
Central Park, designated a National Historic Landmark in 1962, is an urban park in New York City's borough of Manhattan. The park initially opened in 1857 on 778 acres of city-owned land. In 1858, Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux won a design competition to improve and expand the park with a plan to the current 843 acres, which they entitled the Greensward Plan. Construction commenced that same year, continued through the American Civil War, and concluded in 1873. Central Park is the most visited urban park in the United States.
