7. The Carriage Concourse

The panic of 1873 scaled down the plans for Prospect Park, allowing only ongoing projects to be completed with the financial situation lasting a decade. This meant that structures designed by Calvert Vaux like a carriage concourse were never completed. The Carriage Concourse was intended to have a 100 foot canopy that would offer shade for horses and carriages. A shelter next to the concourse also remained unbuilt.
