ARCHITECT: REED AND STEM; WARREN AND WETMORE (1903-1913)


Grand Central Station, also referred to as Grand Central Terminal, is the third-busiest train station in North America and is designated a National Historic Landmark.
I liked the strength of the Beaux-Arts style architecture and was impressed by the Vanderbuilt Ave facade from which I approached.
The interior architecture, although nicely punctuated by large windows, had a sense of solid strength through its large wide column elements.
Somehow, the Beaux-Arts style was nicely offset and complimented by the contemporary black and white electronic message boards.
We visited Grand Central on a Monday evening after the main rush hour traffic and the crowds were fairly light.
