“The new logo for Grand Central is inspired by the clock in the Terminal’s Main Concourse. The hands in the logo point to 7:13, or 19:13 in trainmaster’s time, for the year Grand Central first opened.
Grand Central Terminal is one of New York’s great public spaces, a grand gateway to and beloved symbol of the city. Opened in 1913, the historic landmark is an architectural treasure, famously saved from demolition in the 1970s and fully restored in the 1990s. It is also one of New York’s most important transportation hubs, serving over 700,000 people daily and home to the nation’s largest commuter rail system, the Metro-North Railroad. Next year the building will celebrate its 100th anniversary, which officially kicks off with a birthday rededication on February 1, 2013.”
