Metro-North Improves Air Conditioning at Grand Central
MTA Metro-North Railroad has replaced old five cooling towers atop Grand Central Terminal with four new more energy efficient ones the railroad announced today.
  The work, which happened in the middle of the night and required closing two lanes of 42nd Street, was done in phases so as not to interrupt air conditioning in the terminal.
A massive crane was erected on the street to hoist the huge cooling towers up and over the south façade of the terminal. The viaduct roadway that encircles the terminal also was closed while the crane worked.
