The story of Grand Central Terminal is that of New York City itself: the structure embodies the social, cultural, economic and technological evolution around it. It is one of great men, feuding architects, ingenuity, rejuvenation, secrets and surprises. On this tour, you will hear stories about what once was, what could have been, and what can be; about the struggle to save and restore Grand Central as preserved icon of past, and of challenge to ensure that it serves New York’s future. You will see what it was like in the booming age of the railroad, as a rundown embarrassment, and as a renovated jewel at the center of the city. Explore the interesting and unique spaces produced for and by it.
