  • Why each is a Landmark
  • Grand Central Terminal
  • In 1947, more than 65 million people -- equivalent of 40% of the U.S. population -- traveled through Grand Central Terminal. With the value of prime Manhattan real estate rising and railroad profits falling, the railroad began to talk about demolishing Grand Central Terminal and replacing it with an office building. New York City's new Landmarks Preservation Commission stepped in, in 1967 to designate Grand Central Terminal as a landmark protected by law, temporarily squashing the development plans.
  • Empire State Building
  • It stood as the world’s tallest building for 40 years, from its completion in 1931 until construction of the World Trade Center’s North Tower was completed in 1972. Following the 9/11 in 2001, the Empire State Building was again the tallest building in New York (although it was no longer the tallest in the US or the world). The Empire State Building was once again demoted to second-tallest building in New York on April 30, 2012, when the new World Trade Center reached a greater height.
  • Why each is a Landmark
  • Statue of Liberty
  • It is a symbol of American Freedom and is also 100th anniversary of the United States of America and France’s friendship.
  • Freedom Tower
  • Built as a memorial for the for the victims who died in the 9/11 attack.
  • Homework Assignment:
  • Select a state other than New York and identify two important landmarks in the state you choose. Write a few sentences as to WHY the landmarks you picked are landmarks.
