One of the 12 cast iron bald eagles perched atop the original Grand Central in 1898; (sic) this 1 ½ ton sculpture was removed in 1910. It ultimately came to reside on the grounds of the Westchester home of Laurie Hawkes and Paul Grand Pre.
Ms. Hawks and Mr. Grand Pre graciously offered the noble symbol of Grand Central Terminal's historic past to E. Virgil Conway, chairman of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, who arranged for its triumphant return as part of the terminal's rededication in 1998. It now adorns the Lexington Avenue entrance to Grand Central Terminal.
The eagle was restored for MTA Metro-North by Architectural Iron Company and Evergreen Studios and is finished in gold and palladium leaf and brown paints.
