About the event:
Grand Central Terminal is one of New York’s most famous and most loved buildings (Secrets of Grand Central Terminal is one of Untapped New York’s most popular tours!), but most commuters don’t know that the Terminal is home to an abundance of public art installations. Many of these pieces are passed by thousands of commuters every day. Untapped New York’s Chief Experience Officer, Justin Rivers, will help you to uncover all of the overlooked artwork inside the terminal on this unique look at an iconic building! Discover a massive glass sculpture that was just installed, find out how much the world’s most expensive art installation cost, and learn more about lesser-known pieces you may have never noticed.
