Kitt Garrett presented an excellent lecture about the history and unique facts of Grand Central Station to my students and chaperones during our visit to New York City in April of 2019. Her information made our visit to the station so much more "alive" as we were able to trace our steps through the site locating the key points of her lecture. Many students and chaperones mentioned how glad they were to have the opportunity of Kitt's expertise to guide them. She made the station truly "grand".

Your talk and walk around was great. I had been on the High Line many times before but learned many new facts and saw thing from a different perspective. As an Engineer I was especially taken by what was saved and what was rebuilt.
