100 Years Later, Grand Central

By Lara Tabbara.

Grand Central Terminal turns 100 this year. Its resilience against plans of shutting down makes it one of New York City’s iconic landmarks. It is a place where thousands of commuters cross paths, in the ambiance of an urban ballet, and where most trains come to a stop, bridging large distances in this city center.

Sam Roberts, a New York Times Urban Affairs Correspondent and author of the book “Grand Central: How a Train Station Transformed America,” demonstrates his mastery of Grand Central’s history, describes his early experience with the terminal and expresses his admiration for this “marvel of engineering and transportation.”
