sunday in the park

The best loved and most elegant lovely old bridge,
called Bridge #28 or the Gothic Bridge,
stands just south of the Tennis Courts.
The beautiful curved ironwork & graceful curves
suggesting Gothic church architecture
makes this one of Central Park's most distinctive bridges;

crosses the bridle path near the reservoir.

  1. When I was in NYC I never went to Central Park. What a bummer! Of course, my time was limited but that bridge is very inviting. I've often wished I had made the park a priority. Next time. Maybe?

  2. Yes, that makes a very lovely shadowy photo as well as an interesting shot in Central Park, about which I do not know well as a walker.

  4. I like your park shots Daryl. I wish I lived close enough to one to take my bike for a ride! Enjoy your day. I'm off to church.

  6. That is a beautiful bridge. It must be nice to have so many paths and trails on which to walk. Even though we're rural, we have no such walkways and are limited to the public beaches or the road, unless doing laps around the yard counts, and in my book it doesn't.

    Have a great Sunday.

  11. A lovely bridge and photo.
    The bridges near here are built
    for service and not style. Nothing
    to compare to Central Park's
    offerings...

  14. 'Tis a beautiful bridge, Daryl; as is your descriptive commentary. I love Central Park - an example of what can be done if people put their minds to it!

  16. I just got back from a 16 day trip on the east coast and the last 5 days in NY. Visited some friends and ate LOTS of great food. I need a week to recover.

  17. I know....MY BAD! We were actually in Staten Island for the most time and then visiting a friend of Robert's who lives in Battery Park. Just moved into his new digs. NICE! He's got a panoramic view of Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and a few other things. We are probably going back again in the spring. I've been bad with the blogging but FOR SURE I will let you know next time!

  18. Ah yes, and the dappled light is just the best. Would love to spend a Sunday afternoon there.
