Sam Roberts knows lots about Grand Central Terminal, which is currently celebrating its 100th birth-year. The building itself, and the people that built it, can claim responsibility for the existence of Midtown Manhattan as we know it, a center of commerce and entertainment. It's a unique and interesting structure, with more going on behind the scenes than you'll ever know. Roberts will speak about his book Grand Central: How a Train Station Transformed America Sunday at the Westport Library Sunday afternoon to offer some insights.
