Discover the many secret spaces of Grand Central Terminal and hear little known stories of this New York City icon in a special virtual event! Close to one million people pass through Grand Central Terminal every day, yet very few know the many stories and secrets that you will learn in this virtual talk. Guests will discover the origins and history of the Beaux-Arts train terminal from its glittering glory days, through its days of disrepair, to its ultimate salvation and the modern quests to save it.

You will get to see what most miss: the terminal’s hidden features, design quirks, and much more. We will even share photographs and videos from our explorations into secret spaces of Grand Central like the M42 basement and the glass walkways, both hidden and off-limits to the public. Whether you pass through it every day on your morning commute or plan to stroll through the Grand Central for the first time, you are sure to leave this experience having learned and seen something new and extraordinary.
