2. Porte Saint Denis/Manhattan Bridge

The Porte Saint Denis, in Paris, was designed by Francois Blondel Michel Anguier. It was constructed in 1672 to commemorate Louis XIV’s victories on the Rhine and in Franche-Comte. The gate was inspired by the Arch of Titus, in Rome.

The entryway to the Manhattan Bridge was inspired by this triumphal  gate.
