“Awesome space”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Go exploring. Get a tour or cell based scavenger hunt for the midtown to really appreciate it. History, nice shops. Eat in the food court. Soak it all in where you feel like you stepped back in time, while watching the modern commuter

“A beautiful working building!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

The Beaux-Arts architecture of the building is a delight, and in the Main Concourse is the world famous astronomical ceiling. However, the astronomical design is an abstraction and does not represent an actual view from anywhere on Earth. However, it is something to behold.

There are lost of interesting shops and restaurants, though most of the restaurants are fast-food franchises which cater mainly to the millions of travelers and commuters that pass through the Terminal each year.
