Celebrate Grand Central Terminal’s impact on New York and its continued vitality as a treasured public space
In 1978, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis led the Municipal Art Society of New York in a campaign that saved Grand Central from demolition. In 1998, the Terminal celebrated a restoration which returned it to its original glory. Join us to examine the enduring legacy of these milestones!
Starting September 24, half of Vanderbilt Hall will be taken over by an exhibit in partnership with the New York Transit Museum, the Municipal Art Society of New York, and the Museum of the City of New York that pays tribute to Grand Central Terminal’s 105-year history by featuring its most significant three milestones. The exhibition is organized in a three-part narrative, from its early 1900s inception and construction to the 1970s advocacy campaign to save the Terminal to the 1990s revitalization of the Terminal and its emergence as one of the great examples of successful “placemaking” in New York City. The exhibit tells the story through a series of visualizations of the evolving space.
