The commuter day is so hectic, that few New Yorkers rushing through Grand Central ever really get to learn about the hidden history and lesser known lore behind this classic landmark. Here's your chance as we celebrate Grand Central with a discussion of the symbolism behind its decor and the mysteries behind this Beaux Arts gem. Stops include Grand Central's "whispering arch"; Vanderbilt Hall; a secret apartment used as a speakeasy during the 1920s; its classic ceiling mural with its mysterious constellations painted in reverse; and Jules Coutan’s Roman group god sculpture - a crowning masterpiece to the structure.

11:00am tour. $25 per person.The group will meet at the entrance to the Oyster Bar on the lower level of Grand Central. Advance reservations required by Thursday, January 25th, at which time they are considered final sale.
