4. Manhattan Bridge Entrance Ramp

Manhattan Bridge-Entranceway-Monumental Arch-Chinatown-Port Saint Denis-Paris

The entryway to the Manhattan Bridge was inspired by the triumphal Porte Saint Denis in Paris and is a NYC landmark by the firm Carrère and Hastings, who also designed the New York Public Library. The accompanying colonnade and arch were completed in 1915. The Porte Saint Denis was in turn inspired by the Arch of Titus in Rome.
