With construction of the monumental New York Public Library and Grand Central Terminal in the first decade of the 20th century, midtown was forever changed.No longer dominated by town houses and railway facilities, it became a lively hub of private clubs, office towers, and hotels. Join architectural historian Matt Postal and learn about the lasting impact of these Beaux Arts masterpieces: how such ambitious projects replaced a reservoir and rail yard, encouraged innovative ideas about city planning, and helped introduce high-rise construction to the area. Highlights include the Knox Building, Bryant Park Studios, Park Avenue Viaduct, and various landmarks with subterranean links to the great terminal.
