Grand Central’s Hidden Sub-Basement Has A 102-Year-Old Computer

TheGothamist takes a look at the 102-year-old computer that lives below Grand Central Station in NYC.

In 1913, what some consider to be the first electric computer, built by Westinghouse, was installed in the sub-basement of Grand Central Terminal. You know, the one Hitler tried to infiltrate? Today, over 100 years later, the computer and its various components are still preserved down there.

Ants Reacting To Phone Ringing.
