Summary

A profile of New York City's transport terminal, which is served by 67 train tracks. Its construction was prompted as a response to an accident in January 1902, when a commuter train ran into the back of another resulting in the deaths of 17 people. By 1947 over 65 million people had travelled through the station, which is now regarded as one of the city's most famous spaces and a living monument to the nation's railway age.
