Meaning and History logo

New York Mets Logo history

All the New York Mets logotypes, starting with the very first one, have featured the New York skyline. Each part of the skyline was a symbol in itself. For instance, the church spire referred to Brooklyn, where there are quite a few churches. One could also notice a stylized depiction of the Williamsburgh Savings Bank, the Woolworth Building, the Empire State Building, as well as the United Nations Building.
