Central Park, May 2006
I thought we'd celebrate the holiday weekend with a photo from Central Park, where I'm going today with my friend Rob. This is a detail from Bridge No. 28, an elegant cast-iron structure with a rather prosaic name. It's just north of the Jackie O Reservoir and dates from 1861, according to my handy AIA Guide to New York City. It takes no photographic skill to make this gothic-revival bridge beautiful. In fact, the bridge designers, Calvert Vaux and E.C. Miller, ought to get all the credit for today's posting.
