Grand Central Station, 1905

Grand Central Station, 1905

There have been three train stations bearing the name Grand Central in New York City. This photo shows the second structure, Grand Central Station, which only existed in this form for about a decade. Grand Central Station replaced Grand Central Depot in an effort to relieve congestion and improve safety. A catastrophic train collision in 1902 impelled further improvement, and Grand Central Station was torn down in stages and replaced by Grand Central Terminal completely by 1913.

The Statue of Liberty's Arm in Madison Square Park, 1876

The Statue of Liberty's Arm in Madison Square Park, 1876

In this photo, the arm and torch of the Statue of Liberty have been staged in Madison Square Park.  These portions of the Statue were exhibited there as part of the fund raising effort for the building the base.  The arm and torch remained in the park from 1876 through 1882.  In 1885 fund raising efforts were at a standstill, until a push from Joseph Pulitzer, publisher of the World garnered nearly 120,000 donations, enabling the completion of the pedestal and the assembly of the Statue of Liberty in place on Bedloe's Island.
