This is one of several passageways inside the GRAND CENTRAL TERMINAL (GCT). An original landmark, the GCT is a terminal rail station in Midtown Manhattan. GCT has 44 platforms and 67 tracks, serving commuters traveling to neighboring counties in New York and Connecticut. GCT was almost torn down in the mid 1960s but preservationists like former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy campaigned hard to save this impressive train station. It is estimated that 750,000 people pass through GCT each day. The original chandeliers like those shown above are truly an amazing sight.
