New York City’s Grand Central Terminal is about to celebrate a major milestone. February 2, 2013, marks 100 years since it officially opened to the public. The story of how a big idea turned into an even larger venture (it cost more than $2 billion in today’s dollars) is told in The New York Times by urban affairs correspondent Sam Roberts, excerpted from his book, Grand Central: How a Train Station Transformed America, to be published later this month by Grand Central Publishing.
