Old Pic of Grand Central Station

Grand Central Terminal, Circa 1926


Except for the people's clothes, many of today's photos would not look much different then the one above. Built by the architectural firm Warren & Wetmore, Grand Central Terminal, which is its official name is the largest train station in the world. It contains 44 platforms, with 67 tracks. There are two underground levels: 41 tracks on the upper level and 26 on the lower level. On the lower level is a variety of restaurants. One most popular is the famous Oyster Bar. The station resides between Vanderbilt Ave and Lexington Ave, across the street from the Chrysler Building and stretches north from 42nd Street to Forty-Fourth Street. Built above Grand Central Terminal, on the north side is the Met Life Building, formerly the Pan Am Building, and was a major engineering accomplishment. The terminal recently had its ceiling renovated, depicting the constellations of the universe. It is in the heart of midtown Manhattan and worth visiting.
