Where in Central Park? Do you know where in Central Park this photo was taken? To submit your answer, go to centralpark.com/where-in-central-park. The answers and names of the people who guessed right will appear in next week’s paper and online.

Last week’s answerLocated east of the Pond on what used to be swampland, is Inscope Arch. This twelve foot, pink and gray granite arch was designed by Calvert Vaux. It has a railing of 100 feet and a passageway that is 34 feet in length. Congratulations to Gregory Holman and Robyn Roth-Moise for (again) answering correctly!
