A short history of Grand Central Station.
This mix in the intersection of colors and style for Bolinder Leather Bags fits well into the name of the classical Train Station of New York. It´s not hard to imagine the classical building of Grand Central beeing the place where you meet a friend from a distant place from the very first terminal built back in 1871 by the American business shipping and railroad magnate Cornelius Vanderbilt. Vanderbilt not only built the Grand Central Station as a transportation hub on Manhattan in New York, but he is also considered to have vastly improved and expanded the United States transportation infrastructure, contributing to a transformation of the very geography of the United States. Vanderbilt was the patriarch of the wealthy and influential Vanderbilt family and he embraced new technologies and new forms of business organization that transformed the 21st Century economy.
Some decade later after the death of Vanderbilt, the first original Grand Central station was replaced in 1913 when steam locomotives were banned after a catastrophic train collision in 1902. Over 150000 of the new yorkers turned up for that inauguration. The beautiful Beaux-Arts building of Grand Central as we know it today with its massive marble staircase, 75-foot windows, and the star-studded ceiling was an immediate hit. The world-famous landmark attracted other facilities and buildings to be built around with restaurants, shops, and cultural destinations. Like the iconic 77-story Chrysler Building, the tallest building in the World during 1931. Albeit New York Penn Station is larger in traffic today with 108 million commuters per year, Grand Central has an astonishing 67 million travelers from across the World coming in and out of the terminals. Some more elegant than others.
The gloriest decade of Grand Central Station was in the 1940ies before air travel became common. IN the 50ies the peak has passed and in the late 60ies, profit-seekers were aiming for the demolishment. With prime Manhattan real estate rising and railroad profits falling, the railroad began to talk about removing the Grand Central Terminal and replacing it with an office building. The public outcry stopped this in 1967 by New York City's Landmarks Preservation Commission who stepped in in 1967 to designate Grand Central Terminal as a landmark protected by law, temporarily squashing the development plans. And therefore we can still enjoy this building with its magnificent ceiling located at 42nd Street and Park Avenue in Midtown Manhattan, New York City.
The ceiling, a drawing heavily from Johann Bayer’s 1603 star atlas Uranometria for the design of the constellations, the mural was originally painted right onto the Terminal’s plaster vaulted ceiling. Less than two months after the Terminal opened one astute commuter noticed the design of the ceiling is actually backward; west is east and east is west. There is more hidden secrets about Grand Central of course like the Whispering Gallery. Or the secret platform 61, under Waldorf Astoria where Presidents could arrive without any attention incognito to Manhattan. One thing is certain: The building is magnificent. And elegant. We at Bolinder Stockholm hope to see many more passengers in the Manhattan Square pattern traveling in style with a leather bag in their hands through the roof of Grand Central. And with Grand Central Crossbody or Grand Central Tote as the prime bag for any occasions. Wheater you look for a bag for a everyday elegance or a functional exclusive bag; Bolinder Stockholm offers a wide range of bags for everyday elegance.
