"In February 1913, Grand Central Terminal opened in New York City. Since then, Grand Central has welcomed millions to the city; every day, tourists and commuters alike walk through Vanderbilt Hall, the former Main Waiting Room, under the striking ceiling painted with glowing gold-leaf constellations. This new book celebrates the centennial of Grand Central by revealing its history and its secrets--like the romantic Whispering Gallery--and by showcasing 200 photographs of the terminal inside and out, from the Oyster Bar to the grand staircases to the train platforms themselves. The stunning images, taken by Frank English, official photographer of Metro North Railroad for over 25 years, make it clear why Grand Central is one of the city's most popular destinations"-- Provided by publisher.
