Why was William still said to have operated the grand central station of the underground railroad?
New York's Grand Central Terminal has a total area of 70 acres. It includes two levels for passengers with gates to dozens of tracks, a balcony level, and a two-story underg…round train yard.
Grand Central Terminal which is the RAILROAD terminal is closed between 1 AM and 5 AM every day. Grand Central Station which is the SUBWAY station (below Grand Central Termi…nal) is open 24/7/365.
Penn Station is at 33rd to 34th Street, between 8th Avenue (west entrance) and 7th Avenue (east entrance). Walk up 8th or 7th Avenue to 42nd Street. Turn right onto 42nd and w…alk east to Grand Central, at 42nd Street between Park and Lexington Avenues. That's 4 - 5 avenue blocks from 7th Avenue (not counting Broadway, which runs diagonally and cuts between avenues): 7th Avenue ---> 6th Avenue ---> 5th Avenue ---> Madison Avenue ---> Park Avenue ---> Lexington Avenue. Or you can just take the subway. Take the Uptown 1-2-3 (the red line), 1 stop, from 34th Street-Penn Station to 42nd Street-Times Square. Transfer at 42nd Street-Times Square to the S shuttle train (color grey), east across 42nd Street, from Times Square to Grand Central. From Grand Central to Penn Station, it's the reverse: the S shuttle train west across 42nd, from 42nd Street-Grand Central to 42nd Street-Times Square, and then the Downtown 1-2-3, 1 stop, from 42nd-Times Square to 34th-Penn Station.
Secretly and usually at night. The network of moving slaves to freedom was known as "railroad". Code names were used such as "conductors, stations, depots, etc. Underground me…aning secret. Thus, underground railroad.There were safe houses where runaway slaves would stay for a few days at a time. Sometimes there were hiding places under the floor. Sometimes there was a basement below the basement.
The easiest way would be to take the Lexington Avenue subway Uptown, and then enter at the southeast corner of the park. At Grand Central Station, take the Uptown 4,… 5, or 6 trains (the green line, aka the IRT, aka the Lexington Avenue Line) from East 42nd Street (Grand Central) to East 59th Street. Besides the S shuttle train (color code grey) to West 42nd Street (Times Square), the 4-5-6 is the only subway you can catch at Grand Central Station, so it shouldn't be too confusing. At East 59th Street, you will exit the subway on the east side of Lexington Avenue. Cross to the west side of Lexington, and walk west on East 59th Street until you hit Fifth Avenue (it goes Lexington ---> Park ---> Madison ---> Fifth). The southeast corner of Central Park is on East 59th Street and 5th Avenue. Edited to add: you know, the south side of Central Park is great, but in my opinion, you'd really be missing something if you didn't explore the north side, too. Central Park is just a mile wide, but it's two and a half miles long, so if you enter on the south side, and you're not up for a long walk, you'll probably miss out on the north side of the park. The area of the park from approximately 72nd Street to 79th Street (if the streets ran through the park) features the Central Park Lake and the Ramble. The Ramble is basically a series of tiny intertwined dirt paths, with little wooden bridges (called "kissing bridges") and little streams and waterfalls. When you're in the Ramble, you can't even see the buildings outside of the park, so it really feels like you're in the woods. The Ramble is awesome, but there is another Ramble (called the North Woods) at the north end of the park, and in my opinion, it is just as awesome, if not even more awesome. There's the same kind of intertwining dirt paths, with the same kind of little kissing bridges, but there's a bigger stream, a bigger waterfall that you can walk across, and there is even another lake. Actually, there are two! A bigger one at the northeast corner of the park, called the Harlem Meer, and a smaller one that is just called the Pond (there is also a pond at the southeast corner of the park, just called the Pond. And the lake at approximately 72nd Street is just called the Lake. Honestly, I don't know why some of the bodies of water in Central Park don't have real names). Click on my User name (where it says "First Answer by LimeAid") to see a couple of pictures of the north end of the park. Clicking on my User name will take you to my User page; scroll to the bottom. Anyway, to get to the north end of Central Park from Grand Central Station, you take the S shuttle train (color code grey) west across 42nd Street, from Grand Central Station (East 42nd) to Times Square (West 42nd). At the Times Square Station, transfer to the Uptown 1 train (of the 1-2-3, the red line, aka the Broadway line or BMT). Take the Uptown 1 train from Times Square (West 42nd) to 110th Street. Do NOT take the 2 or 3 trains, as they are express trains and do not stop at 110th. When you exit the subway, you will be on the north side of Central Park, sort of in the middle, but closer to the northeast corner of the park. In fact, you will enter the park right where the Harlem Meer is. See the Related Link below for a complete NYC subway map.
It is on the north side of East 42nd Street (at Lexington Avenue), which makes it part of the Midtown area. If it were on the south side of East 42nd Street, it would be part …of the Murray Hill neighborhood.

It depends where you are going to, as Brooklyn is a large borough. You can go to mta.info and go to trip planner and find out where you are going. It will give you trip info a…nd any delays.
It was because during that time it was illegal in the southern states to help runaway slaves.
Here are some places at the underground railroad that the slaves met up at to escape: they came to the North, South and or canada.

%DETAILS%. Answer . Construction on Grand Central Terminal began in 1903, shortly after work had begun on Pennsylvania Station, but the terminal was not opened until Feb. …2, 1913, and its upper level loop track system was not operational until 1917 and its lower level loop system was not operational until 1927 when it became able to accommodate 1,000 train movements a day.\n. \n.
Yes- Grand Central Station is the name of the SUBWAY station which is below ground (4, 5, 6, 7 and "s" 42nd St Shuttle lines). The RAILROAD station (MetroNorth Railroad) is k…nown as Grand Central Terminal and is at street level.
Grand Central Station is at East 42nd Street and Lexington Avenue.
Take the S shuttle train (color code grey) west across 42nd Street, from Grand Central Station (East 42nd) to Times Square (West 42nd). At the 42nd Street-Times Square Station…, transfer to the Downtown 2 or 3 (of the 1-2-3, the red line) to the Wall Street Station. The Wall Street Station on the 2 and 3 is actually on William Street, half a block from the corner of Wall and William Streets. Note that the 3 train will not stop at Wall Street from 11:30 PM to to 6 AM.
