Delta's "New York to the World" Mural

On July 27, 2004, Delta Air Lines unveiled "New York to the World," a mural at 34th Street and 8th Avenue in Midtown Manhattan. The mural, designed by illustrator Bruce McCall and inspired by daily life on 8th Avenue, depicts Delta's extensive route network from New York and the airline's commitment to the city. The 225 feet-high building was visible from 14 blocks and boasts such world-recognized landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Roman Coliseum, the Parthenon in Athens, San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge, and the Washington Monument in D.C. "New York to the World" was the largest piece of original artwork ever to be featured in New York City, and more than 750,000 people were expected to view the mural daily. The mural required 200 gallons of paint in over 20 different colors to complete.
It was basically symbolic of DL's commitment and support of New York City.
