As part of the transit hub’s centennial celebration, three panels of journalists, historians and experts dissect Grand Central’s past triumphs and tribulations. At noon, “Pioneers of Railroading” features a screening of the 20-minute short “Grand Central Secrets” and brief lectures on the developments that made the station possible. At 3:30pm, “The Battle to Save Grand Central” looks at the 1970s proposal to level the building and the campaign to preserve it. The final lineup, “On the Write Track: Authors on Grand Central,” invites scribes who have covered transit in the city to opine on the structure’s appeal and influence on NYC’s culture.
