Grand Central Turns 100

IMG_6521 - Version 3

On Friday, February 1, in Grand Central Terminal, there will be a celebration for the station’s centennial.

Of immediate interest:

  • Keith Hernandez!
  • The Lego replica of the train station
  • 1913 pricing on various items at shops inside the terminal
    • 19¢ ea. shrimp, 13¢ ea. mussels, 13¢ ea. clams at Pescatore
    • 10¢ shoe shine at Leather Spa
    • 6¢ loaf of rye bread at Zaro’s Bakery
    • 75¢ Adirondack cocktail at Michael Jordan’s The Steak House N.Y.C.
  • Free stuff
    • Grand Central Centennial Luggage Tags
    • Vintage train whistles from Target
    • Spring rolls from Pescatore
    • Origins iPhone cases from Origins

I suppose the Apple Store’s absence from these is due to the fact that it would not be around for another 63 years.
