Celebrate Women's History Month with a former First Lady - Jackie!

March 04, 2019

It took a strong woman to stand up to the Supreme Court, and that's just what Jackie Kennedy Onassis did to help save Grand Central Terminal from being torn down. Typically a quiet woman, Jackie couldn't stand by and watch a favorite landmark in her New York City be mutilated. In the name of preservation, she joined with the city's historical organization and lead the protestors in a court battle that ended in the Supreme Court. Because of her willingness to stand up for what she loved, New York City's iconic train station still stands and serves as a gathering place for New Yorkers, and a welcoming portal for tourists to the city that never sleeps.
