Grand Central _

Grand Central __ ?

MMDE: Grand Central Station

Current: Grand Central Terminal

This MMDE is likely to have a logical explanation, but it's persistence is baffling nevertheless. 

Grand Central Station does not exist. It did from 1900 till 1910, after which it changed it's name to Grand Central Terminal.

The odd thing is the old name is still very much recognised the world over - ask anyone outside the US to complete the phrase "Grand Central __" and they'll likely respond with "Station", even if they've never set foot in the US. 

It doesn't help things when current reports still refer to the old name, such as in this example from the New York Times. Although, it's said the old name is still used "affectionately" so they may be doing the same.

Original site of station from 1871

Grand Central has 44 platforms - the most of any worldwide - and covers 48 acres.
