Mrs. Vanderbilt’s Gate

Forming the 5th Avenue entrance to Central Park’s Conservancy Garden (at 105th Street), is the gate from the now demolished Vanderbilt mansion on 5th and 58th. The gate and fence were designed by George Browne Post who also designed the New York Stock Exchange, the New York World Building, Bronx Borough Hall, and Wisconsin’s state capitol.
