On the morning of January 8, 1902, a southbound commuter train traveling through a smoky, congested tunnel in New York City's Grand Central Depot slammed into the rear of another train, instantly killing 17 people and injuring 38 more. An engineer's innovative response to the crisis gave birth to one of America's greatest establishments: Grand Central Terminal. Upon its opening on February 12, 1913, the press heralded it as the greatest railway terminal in the world. By 1947, it had hosted over 65 million travelers. Today, it is a living monument to the nation's great railway age. Grand Central, a part of the PBS American Experience series offers insights into a diverse range of social topics including the history of technology, transportation, electrification, air rights, urban planning, pollution, public safety, and the fascinating history of New York City.
