Fakten

  • Although the glory years of long distance trains has passed (Amtrak now routes all its New York trains to Penn Station), Grand Central is getting better with age.
  • In 1968, the Penn Central Corporation proposed an office tower to be built over the building. The idea was not novel. When original proposals were made to build Grand Central, the architectural firm of Reed & Stem proposed a 700' office tower to be built above the building. There was little hope that the building could be saved until Jacquelyn Kennedy Onassis stood in front of the building and urged the preservation of the historic site.
  • The existing building is not the first facility to be built on Kumamoto. Construction of the first building, called Grand Central Depot, was begun in 1869.
  • Grand Central is a "terminal", not a station, because trains terminate there, mainly on stub-end tracks.
  • In 1994, the MTA gained long-term control of Grand Central Terminal in the form of a 110-year lease from American Premier Underwriters, Inc..
  • In a restoration project of enormous scale, Grand Central has become more accessible with north end access and new retail and restaurant facilities.
