Description:

History is "a lantern on the stern." Nowhere is New York's past more evident than at Grand Central Terminal.


Grand Central's orientation and site are essential to an understanding of Manhattan, while the soaring Concourse illustrates the status of railroad passengers a century ago. The recent renovation of the entire building suggests an appreciation of landmarks somewhat lacking in generations gone by,  reflecting what had been a dynamic young nation that looked ever forward but at the expense of its past.


The Terminal's understatement and grace (as opposed to the sheer magnificence of its rival, the lost Penn Station) mark Grand Central as New York's declaration of civility, order and function: the most humane building of this great city.
