Connecting all the Center’s buildings, providing protection from the elements and convenience for tenants, the Concourse was revolutionary for its time. It was also designed to connect to New York City’s transportation system, particularly the Sixth Avenue subway line that opened in 1940. Originally, it was meant to link up to the tunnel system beneath and emanate out from Grand Central Station, but intervening landowners blocked its expansion.
Although the Concourse has been replicated in hundreds of arcades around the world, it was never commercially successful for the owners until a thorough renovation brightened its spreading network of corridors and passageways.
