Greyshot Arch, popular with bikers and runners, was built by Vaux in 1860.

The arch is made of white-gray gneiss, while its balustrade has been crafted from New Brunswick sandstone and decorated with fleur-de-lis carvings.

One of the most frequently used arches in Central Park, this arch is 80 feet long and ten feet high.
