GRAND CENTRAL TERMINAL NEW YORK

More than just a pretty face, this Beaux-Arts masterpiece is also an engineering triumph. Charles Reed of the St. Paul firm of Reed & Stem conceived the âœelevated circumferential plaza❠to carry Park Avenue around it. He also borrowed an idea from Stanford White’s original Madison Square Garden for interior ramps to speed the flow of passengers. The trains arrived on a two-level fan of tracks south of 49th Street. He designed a bridge over them strong enough to support a neighborhood of skyscrapers. Reed also designed a terminal building, but work had barely begun when Whitney Warren was hired to design another, which is the building that exists today.
