SECRET LIVES TOUR:

GRAND CENTRAL TERMINAL

Thursday, November 21st, 10:00 a.m- 1:00p.m.

Join the Historic Districts Council for a Secret Lives Tour of Grand Central Terminal.  With the Terminal winding down from a year long centennial celebration, come explore the hallowed passageways, grand halls and the secret corners of this gorgeous architectural landmark.

Designed by Warren & Wetmore and Reed & Stem, and completed in 1913, this gateway to the city was perfect example of a Beaux- Arts building. Combining stunning architecture, new advancements in engineering technology and an efficient functionality for a growing city, GCT was and still remains a distinctly New York masterpiece. The exterior of the building was landmarked in 1967 and the interior landmarked in 1980. The fight to save Grand Central in the 1960s and 1970s was distinctive victory for historic preservation in New York City.

This urban adventure is not for the faint of heart. This tour will last for three hours and will including extended walking, standing and some stair climbing.
