NEW YORK – An iconic New York City building turns 100 years old next year: the Grand Central Terminal. To celebrate this Centennial, special events will occur throughout the year.
The first event begins on Feb. 1, 2013 with a day-long celebration including music, public performances and the opening of a multi-media exhibition about the Terminal’s history. Other events will feature the unveiling of five exhibitions by the New York Transit Museum, a Parade of Trains in May and Centennial editions of the Terminal’s popular Holiday Train Show exhibit and Holiday Fair indoor market.
Year-round, guests can enjoy the Grand Central’s self-guided audio tour, which focuses on the Terminal’s architecture, history and lesser-known facts, such as where President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s private train is hidden nearby. Groups can also browse the Terminal’s shopping boutiques and dining options.
