New York Mets Primary Logo
In the original logo, designed by sports cartoonist Ray Gatto, each part of the skyline has special meaning: at the left is a church spire; symbolic of Brooklyn; the borough of churches; the second building from the left is the Williamsburgh Savings Bank; the tallest building in Brooklyn; next is the Woolworth Building; after a general skyline view of midtown comes the Empire State Building; at the far right is the United Nations Building. The Mets have only had 3 tweaked logos in their history.
1999 - Present
The bridge in the center symbolizes the Mets, by bringing National League baseball back to New York, representing all five boroughs. In 1999, the logo received a slight alteration. The “NY” to the left of the team script was removed. No other notable changes were made.
Reimagining the Mets Logo for the 21st Century
The New York Mets' time-honored skyline logo was created in 1961 and has been utilized by the franchise—with a few tweaks—ever since then.
The visual landscape of New York has evolved over the past half century, the result of both development and of tragedy. Most recently, the city's booming economy has given birth to a transformed skyline, happening even as I write this.
According to Wikipedia:
Since 2003, New York City has seen the completion of 23 buildings that rise at least 600 feet (183 m) in height. Thirteen more are under construction, including One World Trade Center, which will be the tallest building in the country when complete. One World Trade Center is part of the redevelopment of the World Trade Center, which also includes the 975-foot (297 m) 4 World Trade Center, 7 World Trade Center and the two under-construction buildings: the 1,350-foot (411 m) 2 World Trade Center and the 1,171-foot (357 m) 3 World Trade Center.
