NEW YORK, NEW YORK
Built in the heart of the Empire City is the world's greatest and most iconic railway terminal. A colossal Beaux-Arts style transport nexus, Grand Central Terminal was completed in 1913 from the legacy of the railroad tycoon Cornelius Vanderbilt. The terminal quickly became vital to travel and today accommodates 750,000 people daily. This book documents the construction of Grand Central Terminal, the former Grand Central Depot (1871) and Grand Central Station (1900), and illuminates the incredible story of the terminal that revolutionized transport, developed Midtown Manhattan, and opened railroad access to suburban areas.
Gregory Bilottor a trained archaeologist, is finishing his doctoral degree in archaeology and art history at the University of London's School of Oriental and African Studies. He is local to the Hudson River Valley and an avid preservationist. His latest book, Along the Mount Beacon Incline Railway, was released with Arcadia Publishing in 2015. Frank DiLorenzo is a mechanical engineer and inventor with over four decades of working
experience on the railroad, including at Grand Central Terminal. He is also local to the Hudson River Valley and remains active with lifelong service to several community and nonprofit organizations. Images for this book were collected from numerous public and private sources, including libraries, historical societies, individual collections, and the archives of Grand Central Terminal's Frederick Ely Williamson Library.
The Images of Rail series celebrates the history of rail, trolley, streetcar, and subway transportation across the country. Using archival photographs, each title presents the people, places, and events that helped revolutionize transportation and commerce in 19th- and 20th-century America. Arcadia is proud to play a part in the preservation of local heritage, making history available to all.
