Clicking to learn about Grand Central Terminal
New York City's Grand Central Terminal is probably the definitive transportation building in America.
The high-vaulted and much-storied historical treasure is an astounding 100 years old, and the Guardian created a wonderful interactive feature to celebrate the grande dame of trains, subways and Big Apple travelers.
Head to the Guardian's webpage and move your cursor over hotspots on the picture to read historical tidbits like the following:
"Look left when inbound or right when outbound on the upper level to see Track 61, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt old private platform. His armor-clad train car is still there."
