Grand Influences: Architectural Pelham Station Tour
Sunday, June 23, 11am-5pm
To commemorate Grand Central Terminal’s 100th birthday, the Metro-North Railroad Commuter Council (MNRCC) invites you to learn about an even older station: the 1893 Pelham Train Station. In conjunction with the Pelham Street Fair, the Council is hosting two railroad talks with a local historian where you can learn how the railroad has impacted the town of Pelham. At the MNRCC booth, you can also build a model train or train station with your children, and enter a free drawing for chance to win a trip to Grand Central Terminal with lunch at the world-famous Junior’s Restaurant located in the Terminal and passes for the Official Grand Central Audio tour, a family level membership to the New York Transit Museum, a beautiful poster of the original architectural drawing of Grand Central Terminal, and more!
Come for a little bit of railroad history and then spend the day at the Pelham Street Fair. Be entertained by live bands while you shop for crafts, check out the classic car show, and eat some great food from local vendors. It will be fun for the whole family.
