Grand Central Terminal, a shrine to beaux arts exuberance and railway age optimism, remains one of the most dramatic symbols of New York City. In Grand Central Terminal: Railroads, Engineering and Architecture in New York City, Kurt C. Schlichting tells its story, from its arduous 10-year construction (more than three million cubic yards of rock and earth had to be moved) and final completion in 1913, to its late 20th-century decline and 1990s restoration. Drawing on extensive archival research, Schlichting is an attentive observer of the personalities, engineering, politics and scandals surrounding his subject. Though the quantity of detail might be daunting to some nonhistorians, this volume should appeal to urban history fans and those with an avid interest in New York City and its icons.
