Greywacke Arch

Greywacke Arch is an ornate arch named for the variety of Hudson Valley sandstone with which it is built.

Found just south of the Obelisk, Greywacke Arch carries the East Drive and connects the Great Lawn with the landscape behind the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It is notable for its striking “Saracenic” pointed arch, made in the style of Spanish and Middle Eastern architecture, and the elaborate trefoil railing above.
