4. Arch of Constantine/American Museum of Natural History and Municipal Building
The Arch of Constantine, located in Rome, was erected in the year 312 to commemorate Constantine’s victory over Maxentius.
The Beaux-Arts John Russell Pope Central Park West entrance to the American Museum of Natural History and the McKim, Mead, and White designed Municipal Building were modeled after the Arch of Constantine.
The building’s terra-cotta vault was inspired by the Palazzo Farnes and its columned entrance was possibly modeled on Bernini’s Colonnade, at St. Peter’s
