Grand Central Terminal centennial celebration kicks off today

NEW YORK - Metropolitan Transportation Authority and Metro-North Railroad will open Grand Central Terminal to the public on February 1, for the celebration of its 100th Anniversary with a full day of activities, including a morning public rededication ceremony and musical performances that will keep visitors entertained well into the evening. 

The morning ceremony will feature elected officials, high-profile celebrities and VIPs, and performances by award-winning musicians and New York students.  Throughout the day - which is hosted by Metro-North, the New York Transit Museum and other partners - members of the public can enjoy live performances, national award presentations, sponsor giveaways, special retail deals, and the opening of "Grand by Design," a spectacular six-week exhibit that chronicles the history and impact of New York's greatest building and one of the world's most famous train terminals.
