When midtown Manhattan's Grand Central Terminal first opened on February 2nd, 1913, more than 150,000 visited to see the new railroad digs. This new coffee table hardcover celebrates the terminal's centennial in words and pictures. The latter includes two hundred photographs, both seldom-seen archival images and new pictures by Metro-North's official photographer, Frank English. The text is provided by Anthony Robins, the former New York Landmarks Commission survey director and a longtime writer and lecturer on NYC architecture and history. Editor's recommendation.
