Grand Central entrance named after ex-first lady
July 01, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

NEW YORK — A newly renovated entrance to Grand Central Terminal has been dedicated to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, who led the historic fight to save the terminal.

The entrance at Park Avenue and East 42nd Street was dedicated to the former first lady on Monday.

It’s now called the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Foyer. A large plaque features a bronze relief of Onassis and describes her role in saving the terminal.

Her efforts led to the U.S. Supreme Court upholding the city’s Landmark Law in 1978 and saving Grand Central from having a 53-story tower built atop it.

The Beaux-Arts train terminal opened in 1913.
