Gate of All Saints

I've passed this way many times, but never noticed the imposing script until last night. 97th and Broadway, the entrance to Central Park.

I really love how rich Central Park is. Almost everything has a name. We're so lucky to have it there!

Druidhead said...

That should read 97th and Central Park West.

It is very nice. Lovely name for a gate.

James said...

I wonder how old it is.

Louis la Vache said...

Vaughan Williams' hymn For All the Saints came immediately to mind!

«Louis» notices that this gate is not of pearl, so while Central Park may be, on occasion, heavenly, it is clearly not heaven...

Those bricks in the path look hazardous to walk on? - Dave

Do you know why it has that name? Did it start its life attached to a church of some sort?

I like the raggedness of the walkway paving.

Strange... we often do this. Pass common sites and never take it ALL in!

Was it the entrance to a church, originally?

Rob said...

Curious to where this leads.

Did you meet St. Peter at the Gate? :-) Nice catch!

Happy New Year!

Great pic; was that the colour of the streetlight?

Daryl said...

The etchings of the gate names was 're-done' a few years ago ... I too never noticed the All Saints gate before ... now of course I need to know if there was a church there to inspire that 'tag'
