Description:
8 1/2 x 11 - Hardbound, 160 pages, and 220 illustrations. "This richly illustrated work traces the colorful story of the present Grand Central Terminal constructed in 1913. Described is how the present terminal replaced two other Grand Central terminal in the same location. Described is how the station was built, how service was interupted during the building years, the placing of tracks under Fifth Avenue and operated by electric locomotives, and the beauties of the station itself. Although Grand Central fell on hard times following the decline of long distance passenger trains, and was borderline tacky, the terminal has been reborn to its past glory at a cost of $200 million. It is now a heavy commuter terminal."
