PSA: American Experience: Grand Central

For those of you as interested in history, or New York City, or New York City history, or trains, as I am...

Tonight PBS's American Experience is showing "Grand Central," about the history of Grand Central Terminal in New York City. Grand Central Terminal opened on February 12, 1913, eleven years after the January 8, 1902 accident in Grand Central Depot that killed fifteen people. The show's website, Grand Central | American Experience | PBS, will eventually provide the entire episode for your viewing pleasure, as well as a program transcript. For the moment, however, it's still worth visiting for the old photos and newspaper reports. And they've got a teacher's guide!
