Inside Grand Central

An architectural feat is a city’s beating heart.

Step inside Grand Central Terminal…like you’ve never seen it before. This is the story of a living engineering feat, an iconic gem of a monument, and the ultimate symbol of power from the Golden Era of railroading.

A vibrant, vital relic that has survived and now thrives as the ultimate expression of the urban interface in the information age.  History, politics, architecture, engineering, fiscal clout and conniving, and the passage of countless individual lives, past and present, intersect in the story of this iconic building.   Inside Grand Central weaves these strands into a sweeping panorama—the story of a landmark’s birth, its rise and fall and rebirth against all odds, its secret histories and the extraordinary characters who over the century beat at the very heart, soul, and near-demise of this architectural Mecca.
