The Landmark Lectures focus on the origin, development, and restoration of New York City’s built environment, and celebrate the art and architecture of the City. The Conservancy is pleased to co-sponsor this series with the General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen of the City of New York.
In this illustrated lecture, based on his book, Grand Central Terminal: 100 Years of a New York Landmark, author Anthony W. Robins, will describe the remarkable history of Grand Central, its stunning architecture and central role in creating midtown Manhattan. Mr. Robins will also elaborate on how the Terminal’s creation combined engineering bravado, technological wizardry and real-estate savvy with innovative planning and Paris-inspired Beaux-Arts design.
