Grand Central Terminal Turns 100
New York’s Grand Central Terminal celebrates its 100th anniversary tomorrow. It opened Feb 2, 1913 and is easily one of the most recognizable architectural landmark — and perhaps one of the most photographed also. The tall ceilings, large open space and rays of light streaming thru the windows — all conspire to make an unforgettable photo. Today, it sports 68 shops and 35 dining options.
Grand Central Terminal officially opened to great fanfare at 12:01 am on Sunday, February 2, 1913, and more than 150,000 people visited the new terminal on its opening day. Although construction was not yet entirely complete, Grand Central Terminal had arrived and New York City would never be the same again.
