Grand Central Terminal
Check out my time lapse video of the build!
Grand Central Terminal is a commuter and subway terminal and station located at 42nd Street and Park Avenue in midtown Manhattan, New York City. It serves MTA's Metro-North Railroad, as well as the 4,5,6,7,and S subway lines.

Built in 1903-13 from a design collaboration by Reed & Stern and Warren & Wetmore architects (collectively called "Associated Architects"), this majestic terminus is an engineering marvel and a grand monument to the Golden Age of the American railroad.
