Tile Work Under the Terrace Bridge

This beautiful tiled ceiling under the Terrace Bridge leads park goers from the Litrary Walk to the Bethesda Fountain in Central Park. Most people take the alternate outdoor staircases on either side of this tunnel and missed this display altogether.

So what are you plans for the weekend? I'm still recovering my jetlag.

Breathtakingly beautiful and I enjoyed reading the excellent links regarding the historical details and back story. I have always wanted to visit this site and now I shall do so the next time I am in NYC. I just love your photos and information.

Got to catch up on some work but am going to spend Saturday afternoon with my girlfriends shopping, then stopping for a glass of wine.

Have you ever been to Belvedere Castle? Maybe that can be your next pic.

That's gorgeous! Especially for a pedestrian tunnel!

Just watched Ballet Philippines' Neo Filipino — a fusion of ballet, jazz, ethnic and modern dance. It was fantastic!

Saretta said...

So beautiful! I would never have expected that in a tunnel!

This weekend is enforced relaxation as I'm feeling a bit peaked! :-)

Hi Ming!
So you're back, and missed Lisbon... Mistake!! ;))
It's true that I crossed this only two or three times; all the others took the alternate way... but it's wonderful!
Plans for the weekend? Comment on your last posts... ;)

Blogtrotter has Akbar’s capital city for you. Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Welcome home. Can't wait for more pics about your trip.

I cannot believe we were right there by the bridge and walked next to it on the stairs and not under! Amazing shot-our loss, that's for certain.

Thanks Ming.
