Greywacke Arch by Family Ghost

Another of Vaux's Central Park arches, Greywacke Arch was built in 1862 and underwent its most recent renovation by the Central Park Conservancy in the 1980's.

Greywacke, found in the Hudson River Valley, is the type of sandstone from which this arch has been built. Not far from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, this Greywacke Arch is highly ornamental and is noted for its Saracenic pointed arch that mimics Middle Eastern and Spanish style architecture.
