Favorite Landmark: Grand Central Terminal. The Terminal is an amazing landmark that seamlessly blends architecture and engineering. It also played a pivotal role in the legal history of Historic Preservation in the United States. The long-anticipated restoration of Grand Central Terminal in the late 1990s was one of the most interesting and rewarding projects that I recall.
