Did you know there is another, often overlooked architect who worked closely with Olmsted and Vaux and was responsible for many of our favorite Central Park designs?  British-born Jacob Wrey Mould’s distinctive decorative fingerprints may be found on many of the park’s structures, arches and bridges, and the whimsical relief carvings of Bethesda Terrace.  Our walk will take us from Tavern on the Green, to Minerals Spring, to the Concert Ground, and through the Arcade to Bethesda Terrace in the heart of Central Park.  We’ll learn about lost structures and about this rather mysterious figure.  Come spend a beautiful Autumn day in the park with Untapped New York's tour guide Beth Goffe!
