Former New York mayor Ed Koch and others give an in-depth look and behind-the-scenes tour of Grand Central's Beaux-Arts splendor. Gabrielle Shubert, director of the New York Transit Museum, notes that, "This building is an incredible and unique example of a perfect amalgam of architecture, art and engineering."
Gateway to a city. Gateway to a continent. Gateway to a century. This is Grand Central Terminal.
