Commuters and those visiting Manhattan next week will want to make a point to stop by Vanderbilt Hall of Grand Central Terminal.
This year’s edition of “Taste of the Terminal” – an annual event featuring a variety of vendors offering free samples – has been expanded.
The event, which will be held June 26 through 28, will not only feature more participation but will also take a look back at a Grand Central milestone.
June 26 is the 40th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark decision that saved the terminal from demolition.
To celebrate, a photography installation featuring archival images from the New York Transit Museum will be featured during “Taste of the Terminal.” Among the images will be a selection spotlighting Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, who famously spearheaded the Committee to Save Grand Central Station.
Among the vendors scheduled to participate in the “Taste” event, offering free food and merchandise samples, are Café Grumpy, Doughnut Plant, Shake Shack, Origins, Michael Jordan’s The Steak House N.Y.C., Li-Lac Chocolates, Ceriello Fine Foods, The Art of Shaving, Tia’s Place, Zaro’s Family Bakery and Vineyard Vines. The event will also include live music provided by MTA Music.
Programming will run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day of the event.
