Wikipedia can explain Bethesda Terrace much better than I can.

"Bethesda Terrace (back) and Bethesda Fountain (front)
Bethesda Terrace and Fountain overlook The Lake in New York City’s Central Park. The fountain is located in the center of the terrace.

Bethesda Terrace is on two levels, united by two grand staircases and a lesser one that passes under Terrace Drive. They provide passage southward to the Elkan Naumburg bandshell and The Mall at the center of the park. The upper terrace flanks the 72nd Street Cross Drive and the lower terrace provides a podium for viewing the Lake. The mustard-olive colored carved stone is New Brunswick sandstone, with a harder stone for cappings, with granite steps and landings, and herringbone pattern paving of Roman brick laid on edge."
