Bridge No. 28 is one of Central Park's three Reservoir bridges. It has earned the nickname “Gothic Bridge” due to its stunning neo-Gothic design, which extends over the bridle path between the northern Reservoir and the Tennis Courts.
Bridge No. 28 was designed in 1864 by Park co-designer Calvert Vaux.
While most of the bridges in Central Park have both a name and a number, three do not: Bridge No. 28, Bridge No. 24, and Bridge No. 27, which all span the bridle path that surrounds the Reservoir.
