NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – It will be a very special day on Friday for a landmark Midtown building, as it celebrates its 100th birthday.
Grand Central Terminal is a cathedral to rail transportation. Its constellation-laden ceiling soars 125 feet above your head. The main concourse is 275 feet long and 125 feet wide.
“It’s very rich, I mean the colors, the play of light on the floor, the beautiful blue ceiling. Everything is golden and gleaming and polished marble,” the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s Marjorie Anders told WCBS 880 reporter Rich Lamb.
