Winterdale Arch

winterdale arch


Carrying the West Drive at 81st Street, this granite and sandstone arch was a key feature of the Winter Drive, the conifer-lined West Drive from 102nd street to 72nd Street. Completed by 1862, the arch's wide elliptical arch is the largest span of all the Park's stone-and-brick bridges. The arch had significantly deteriorated over time, with its ornamental cast-iron railings destroyed by multiple traffic accidents. In 1993, the Conservancy restored Winterdale and reconstructed the railings, which had been missing for 50 years.
