Happy Late 100th Birthday Grand Central Terminal!



Yesterday, February 1, 2013, The Grand Central Terminal in New York City celebrated it's 100 Birthday. Thousands of New Yorkers showed up to celebrate and the massive celebration included Michael Bloomberg, Alfred G Vanderbilt III, Paul Szapary and Caroline Kennedy as speakers. A giant sign with the number "100" on it was hung up outside the building and shops gave enormous discounts to celebrate.

The terminal was built in 1913 and was constructed by Reed & Stern and Warren & Wetmore. Throughout time, several additions were made and a massive renovation was undertaken between 1994-2000. Besides platforms, the Grand Central also includes several dining rooms such as the Oyster Bay and several dining rooms on the dining concourse. It is a true New York City landmark!
