Huddlestone Arch

huddlestone arch


A marvel of engineering and construction, Huddlestone Arch is considered by many to be the most surprising of Central Park's arches. Built entirely of huge, uncut boulders, the 1866 arch, design Calvert Vaux is constructed without the use of mortar or other binding material. Only gravity and pressure keep the massive boulders in place, one of which is said to weigh 100 tons. The arch actually supports traffic over the Loch to the East Drive.
