A link to some information on the grand opening of Grand Central.
If these walls could really talk?
This is the era of when Grand Central first opened. I believe this is just outside.
Look how silent it is:) 1912 Library of Congress image:

I thought the above image was so interesting that this past summer I did a blog post where I planted myself in the image because I really wanted to go on a train ride in the 40s. Can you see me?
Can you believe in 1947, over 65 million people ( 40% of the US population) traveled the rails via Grand Central? Amazing!

I used to commute daily into the city and would go through Grand Central. I don't get too many opportunities to get into the city lately.
