Agreement recognizes Grand Central Terminal, Tokyo Station as 'sister' stations

Representatives of MTA Metro-North Railroad and East Japan Railway Co. in Tokyo signed a commemorative agreement that recognizes Grand Central Terminal in New York City and Tokyo Station as sister stations, Metro-North President Howard Permut announced yesterday.

The agreement also honors Grand Central's centennial year in 2013 and Tokyo Station's upcoming centennial in 2014.

"Both Grand Central Terminal and Tokyo Station are important icons in worldwide transportation," Permut said in a prepared statement. "I believe our honorary collaboration today will bring significant awareness to the vibrant contributions we both bring to our local communities and to the international history that we all share."
