A Centuries Mark on Grand Central

Posted: Jan. 28th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

This upcoming February 1st Grand Central Station will be having its one-hundredth birthday. After serving the City Of New York for 100 years, the station is still in full operation. This Historic building was made into a landmark in 1970 in a Supreme Court hearing.

NEW YORK -- Grand Central, the country's most famous train station and one of the finest examples of Beaux Arts architecture in America, turns 100 on Feb. 1. Its centennial comes 15 years after a triumphant renovation that removed decades of grime and restored its glittering chandeliers, cathedral windows and famous ceiling depicting a night sky.

The building's survival is also a testament to historic preservation: The landmark was saved from demolition in the 1970s thanks to a battle spearheaded by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis that went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
