DESCRIPTION

One hundred years ago — in the winter of 1913 — Grand Central Terminal, one of New York’s most beloved and recognizable landmarks, opened. Sam Roberts, urban affairs correspondent for The New York Times and author of a new book entitled Grand Central: How a Train Station Transformed America (Grand Central Publishing, 2013), will present a lecture about Grand Central — its conception, history, and the far-reaching cultural impact of the station.
