Bare trees and orange-brown hills in Central Park

Leon Kroll’s “Scene in Central Park” gives viewers the park as he saw it in 1922. It must be winter, or close to it: the landscape is all orange and brown and green amid bare trees.

Now the question is, which bridge is this. Gapstow over the lake?

    Even though I walk through this corner of the park often, I wouldn’t have realized the painting was of Gapstow Bridge, but you have it right, I think!
    I enjoy your blog very much, particularly for the different perspective it gives me on places and things I see every day. Thank you!

    Definitely Gapstow Bridge. The hump to the left is the site of the current Hallett Nature Sanctuary.
