Artist Sophie Blackall is endlessly inspired by the “Missed Connections” section of Craigslist. Playing off these poetic posts, Blackall images one stranger making a lasting impression on another within her illustrations. When the artist noticed the following post (which happened on Grand Central’s actual birthday), she couldn’t resist the timelessness of the location and sentiment:

Friday evening I was racing through the Main Concourse and you were there standing still, staring up at the stars. You had a book in your hand. You were lovely. Time stood still for a second while I fell in love, then I had to catch my train. Then I thought, Damn. Then I thought of a Plan. So here’s my ridiculously romantic plan: Meet me under the stars on Valentine’s Day.  8pm.  Bring your book.

See Blackall’s charming Grand Central, You and Me in Arts for Transit’s exhibit 'ON TIME/Grand Central at 100' on view at the New York Transit Museum gallery in Grand Central Terminal through July 7.
