A National Institution Celebrates Its 100th Anniversary
One of America’s greatest transportation hubs and one of New York City’s iconic buildings, Grand Central Terminal is a national institution and an international example of giving new life to an historic building that otherwise would have been destroyed. As it celebrates its Centennial this year, the Terminal stands as one of New York City’s most famous landmarks–from its marble halls to its priceless Tiffany clock that serves as a favorite meeting place for both New Yorkers and visitors from around the world… from its singular façade adorned with the Roman god Mercury, to the evocative view of the stars on its massive interior vault. Every day 750,000 people pass through its storied hallways. It is a living, breathing monument to public transportation. A testament to the fact that bold ideas, when executed with vigor and precision, can remain as vital and important as they were 100 years ago.
