Digital Discussion - Symbol of New York: Grand Central

Thursday March 10

6:00 PM  –  7:00 PM

New Yorkers in the early 1900s saw their city as the new cultural and commercial capital, deserving of a majestic landmark. The vibrant City Beautiful movement, meanwhile, promoted architectural excellence. Grand Central Terminal satisfied both desires, invigorating midtown Manhattan and transforming regional transportation.

Join Museum Educator Joe Hartman for a digital discussion on the evolution of Grand Central Terminal. Explore how it was constructed in stages to serve the demands of the city’s expanding population and how the grandeur and opulence of its architecture has continued to attract travelers and sightseers alike.
