From Last Year:
MTA Metro-North Railroad is the steward of Grand Central Terminal, which stands as one of America’s greatest transportation hubs and one of New York City’s most iconic buildings. It is both a national institution and an international example of the success that can be achieved giving new life to a historic building that otherwise may have been destroyed. Over the course of a colorful and vibrant 100-year history, Grand Central has gone from being among the 20th Century’s most significant start and end points for long-distance rail travel, to being both the flagship home of MTA Metro-North Railroad and a global destination for commuters, tourists and residents alike. The Terminal boasts restaurants, cocktail lounges, a gourmet market, and many specialty shops. Its storied Vanderbilt Hall, once the waiting room for long-distance travelers, is among the most-desired public event spaces in the city. Starting with a kick-off event on Feb. 1, 2013, Grand Central will celebrate its 100th anniversary with events and activities planned throughout the year.
