The Oak Bridge

Oak Bridge at Bank Rock Bay


Calvert Vaux had originally created an ornate design: carved white oak, panels of decorative cast iron set in the railings, and pine floorboards.
 
Created on 1860 the bridge invites a direct path into the woods, rocky and the wild forest of The Ramble. It was replaced in the early 1930s by a nondescript bridge of ordinary wood planks and iron pipe railing. 




This current bridge was restored from scratch in 2009 exactly the same as the original design, and constructed of steel and aluminum which was coated to resemble the painted carved oak elements of the original. New York Steel constructed the street structure and Welding Works fabricated and installed the ornamental cast aluminum.
