Grand Central (Episode #2004)

KQED Life: Tue, Dec 21, 2010 -- 8:00 PM

On the morning of January 8, 1902, a southbound commuter train traveling through a smoky, congested tunnel in New York City's Grand Central Depot slammed into the rear of another train, instantly killing 17 people, and injuring 38. A self-taught engineer's innovative response to that crisis ultimately gave birth to one of America's greatest architectural and technological monuments -- Grand Central Terminal. When Grand Central Terminal opened on February 12,1913, the press heralded it as the greatest railway terminal in the world. Today, it remains one of New York and America's most famous spaces, and a living monument to the nation's great railway age.
