A New Terminal Under Grand Central: The East Side Access Project
Monday, October 6th at 6:30 pm
One of the nation’s largest transportation infrastructure projects is currently underway right in the heart of Midtown. The MTA’s East Side Access Project will bring the Long Island Rail Road into a brand new terminal to be built below—and incorporated into—Grand Central. Join a panel of expert insiders to hear about the grand vision, engineering innovations, and considerable technical challenges behind the new Terminal, expected to open in 2019-2023. The Project represents a whole new level of investment in American public transportation, and will bring New York closer to European and Asian urban practices. Speakers include architect Frank Prial, Jr., AIA, historian Francis Morrone, MTA Program Manager, Grand Central Terminal Douglas Tilden, MTA Associate Director of Planning Jack Dean, and Elisa Picca, LIRR Chief Planning Officer. Maxinne Leighton, Associate AIA will moderate the discussion.
