First built in 1913, Grand Central
was saved from destruction by New York's landmark laws and vocal New Yorkers, including Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Brendan Gill, who wanted to see Grand Central restored. Extensive efforts to restore and revive this National Historic Landmark lead to its re-dedication on October 1, 1998 when Grand Central Terminal had been restored to its original glory.
Today, Grand Central Terminal is not only a transportation hub for travelers using the subway and Metro-North trains, but it is also a destination in itself. This beautiful example of Beaux-arts architecture, is home to numerous restaurants, great shopping and even a beautiful cocktail bar, The Campbell Apartment.
