A show that's got some railroad history in it! Hey, how about that?
Grand Central Station on The American Experience
NY Times Article
The American Experience Site
I'll probably watch tonight, but when I heard the previews on the radio this morning, and they were talking about a "wonder" and "New York" and "Train Station," I really thought it was going to be about Pennsylvania Station. Which was the subject of a recent book, "Conquering Gotham" and was the poster-child of historic preservation movements in the 1960's after it was demolished for the current Madison Square Garden.
I have high hopes for this show tonight, American Experience usually does a very good job with their topics, in fact far superior to pretty much anything the History Channel has put out. So please take a gander tonight on your local PBS Station (times may vary, but it's on at 9pm tonight here in MD)
