Thank You to our Grand Central Docents!
December 18th, 2014, 11:26 am
This week, we had the honor of hosting a celebratory dinner thanking our MAS docents, who volunteer their time year-round leading tours of Grand Central Terminal for visitors and New Yorkers alike. Since we launched the program two years ago during Grand Central’s Centennial year of operation, four docent classes have completed a rigorous, 5-week course in the history of New York City, and brought their own research, insights, enthusiasm, and personality to nearly 16,000 tour-takers on more than one thousand tours. Their dedication to MAS and urban literacy is an inspiration to all of us. This week, we celebrated the docents’ years of service at a very fitting place – a restaurant themed after a famous train. We hope you’ll join them on a tour soon – and discover the many secrets of Grand Central. See more: About the docents | Photos from a recent tour & the docents’ celebration | All MAS tours
