Grand Central Terminal: 100 Years of a New York Landmark


Grand Central Terminal: 100 Years of a New York Landmark Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Opened in February 1913, Grand Central Terminal—one of the countrys great architectural monuments—helped create Midtown Manhattan. Over the next century, it evolved into an unofficial town square for New York. Today, it sits astride Park Avenue at 42nd Street in all its original splendor, attracting visitors by the thousands. This new book celebrates Grand Centrals Centennial by tracing the Terminals history and design, and showcasing 200 photographs of its wonders—from the well-trodden Main Concourse to its massive power station hidden 10 stories below. The stunning photographs, some archival and some taken by Frank English, official photographer of Metro-North Railroad for more than 25 years, capture every corner of this astonishing complex.

Praise for Grand Central Terminal:


“The book is thoroughly researched and reads like a library of design, lifestyles, art and trivia that even New Yorkers dont know.” —NY Arts Magazine
