Although most refer to it as Grand Central Station, Grand Central Terminal is the official name of the main terminal station located in Manhattan. Grand Central Station is in fact the name of the post office which is situated nearby. Officially opened in 1913 even though construction had not yet completed, Grand Central Terminal true to its name, announced it arrival in grand fashion. After a few decades of serving Manhattan and its people, Grand Central Terminal found itself under the threat of being demolished as America was on its way to transform itself into a country of the future which looked at automobiles to fulfill its transportation needs. Although many development plans threatened to demolish certain part of Grand Central Terminal in the 1960’s, the Landmarks Preservation Commission saw to it that this historic building was not flattened to the ground for financial gain.
