Photos of a Restored Bethesda Terrace Arcade

POST #    2426

Almost two weeks ago, NYC's Parks Department and the Central Park Conservancy unveiled the restored arcade at Bethesda Terrace in Central Park. What they did is really beautiful, but they essentially restored and replaced 15,876 of the tiles on the ceiling of the arcade. Total cost - $7 million.

A lot more photos, including some of the tools they used for the project, in my flickr photoset.

Oh, and if you didn't see, there was a site redesign that went live last night. We're still working out the bugs.
