Where Eagles Fly
The updated station also featured a “classical” facade, a unified 16,000 square foot waiting room, and distinctive ornamentation, including monumental cast-iron eagles with wingspans of 13-feet. One of these eagles was recently salvaged and will rise again above Grand Central’s new entrance at 43rd street and Lex. The other can be found on the corner of 42nd and Vanderbilt.
