Grand Central Centennial
The Grand Central Terminal Centennial celebration continues throughout 2013, with a wide variety of events and activities that underscore the Terminal's impact on New York, as well as the history and enduring appeal of rail travel.
Target is the presenting sponsor of the Grand Central Terminal Centennial celebration. Additional sponsors include The Westin New York Grand Central Hotel, global commercial real estate services firm CBRE, Inc., New York-based food brand Carvel Corporation, and Columbia Business School. WABC-TV and The New York Times are media partners. "We are pleased that so many private companies with ties to New York City have stepped forward to provide funding that will make many of our Centennial year activities possible," said Metro-North President Howard Permut.
ABOUT GRAND CENTRAL TERMINAL
MTA Metro-North Railroad is the steward of Grand Central Terminal, which stands as one of America's greatest transportation hubs and one of New York City's most iconic buildings. It is both a national institution and an international example of the success that can be achieved giving new life to a historic building that otherwise may have been destroyed. Over the course of a colorful and vibrant 100-year history, Grand Central has gone from being among the 20th Century's most significant start and end points for long-distance rail travel, to being both the flagship home of MTA Metro-North Railroad and a global destination for commuters, tourists and residents alike. The Grand Central "brand" includes boutique restaurants and cocktail lounges, a gourmet market, and many specialty shops. It draws thousands of national and international tourists each day and wows them with its varied offerings and tour programs. Storied Vanderbilt Hall, once the waiting room for long-distance travelers, is among the most-desired public event spaces in the city.
