It's a monumental space filled with meticulously crafted details - a fascinating challenge to sketch. Grand Central Terminal is one of our nation's historical landmarks and remains the busiest train station in the country.
This special event will be hosted by Judy Garza from NYC USk. Judy worked as a tour guide at Grand Central and has lots to share.
The Main Concourse is the center of Grand Central. At 275 ft long by 120 ft wide by 125 ft high. Originally opened in 1871, it was rebuilt in 1913 and restored in 1994–2000
