" It's been called the greatest railroad station in the world. But it is also much more than that. New York's Grand Central Station has left its mark on railroads, airports and the preservation movement. GRAND CENTRAL tells the story of this exquisite landmark through extensive archival photos, rare footage and interviews with trainmen, politicians and preservationists. See how Cornelius Vanderbilt's vision led to the creation of a building that combined architectural beauty with function in a way that has inspired the designers of airports to today. Remarkable footage shows the station rising in midtown Manhattan, which was then derided as ""the end of the world,"" but soon bloomed with new buildings around the anchor of the station. And trace the long battle between preservationists and developers that climaxed in a Supreme Court decision which prevented Grand Central's demolition and gave a boost to efforts to save landmark buildings nationwide. From the first plans to the ongoing renovation, GRAND CENTRAL is the definitive history of one of the world's great buildings. "
