1910 Terra Cotta Figural Frieze Mural from the Grand Central Station Area

About

Terra cotta figural frieze from the facade of the 42nd and Vanderbilt, Warren and Wetmore building, circa 1910. Adjacent to New York City's Grand Central Station, it was built to suit the progress of the bustling train station concourse. The Beaux Arts architecture of the facade of the building was designed to compliment the outstanding architecture of Grand Central Terminal, also designed by Warren and Wetmore. Grand Central was the largest architectural and commerce deal in New York City at the turn of the century, spanning over 20 New York city blocks in area. The terminal, of course, is land marked. But the complimentary surrounding buildings have now made way for a New Era of progress. This structure that faced the west side entrance of the terminal for a century, has now been torn down to make way for New York City's fourth tallest sky scraper building at what is now called One Vanderbilt. The artifacts carefully salvaged from this building are as close as you can get to having a piece of the historic Grand Central terminal itself! This can be seen at our 400 Gilligan St location in Scranton, PA.
