Description

A richly illustrated - and entertaining - history of the iconic Grand Central Terminal from Sam Roberts of the New York Times

"This well-done piece of urban history will appeal to both railroad enthusiasts and general readers."-Booklist

Featuring quirky anecdotes and behind-the-scenes information, this book will allow readers to peek into the secret and unseen areas of Grand Central -- from the tunnels, to the command center, to the hidden passageways.

With stories about everything from the famous movies that have used Grand Central as a location to the celestial ceiling in the main lobby (including its stunning mistake) to the homeless denizens who reside in the building's catacombs, this is a fascinating and, exciting look at a true American institution.
