Vintage Images of Grand Central Terminal

Grand Central Terminal in New York City celebrated its 100th year anniversary earlier this month. Designed by the architectural firms of Reed and Stem and Warren and Wetmore, the Beaux-Arts beauty was preceded by Grand Central Depot and Grand Central Station. This landmark was even almost demolished back in the ’70s. The iconic station is the largest in the world with 67 tracks and 44 platforms. It sees some 750,000 visitors pass through daily. See the full gallery of photos at Flavorwire.com here.
