New Yorkers marked the 100th birthday of Grand Central Terminal on Friday. The busy terminal was even more crowded than usual as tourists and commuters gathered to hear birthday speeches under the twinkling constellations that adorn the main hall’s soaring ceiling. Friday’s party took place exactly 100 years after the keys to Grand Central were first given to the stationmaster.

It is also a shopping and dining destination and is one of the world’s most popular tourist attractions.
