Patience in a Monument

This was the last of my paintings on Friday (17th) in Central Park. There was a performer setting up under the archway and a number of curious people stopped to wait for him to begin. I sketched lots of their poses and then did this quick oil sketch of a woman silhouetted against the backdrop of the walkway - she had waited the longest, by far. I hope she was not disappointed in the performance. It was intriguing and dramatic. That walkway was so ornate and beautiful too. But I can't find any detailed information about it. I'd love to learn more if any of you know when and why it was built.
