Overview

Grand Central Terminal is the most extraordinary public space in New York City. Opened to the public in 1913, this historic train terminal is a world-famous landmark in Midtown. Its rich history is a story of immense wealth and great engineering. Grand Central is one of the busiest train stations in the world, with approximately 750,000 visitors every day. It is the home of Metro-North Railroad, a subway station, iconic restaurants, shops, and the world's most alluring Apple Store. Some of the highlights to see along your tour of Grand Central include the opal-faced clock, valued at $20 million, above the Information Booth, the Largest Tiffany Glass Clock in the World below the 48-foot, 1500-ton Transportation statue overlooking 42nd Street at Park Avenue, and the mystifying acoustics of the Whispering Gallery in front of the Oyster Bar and Restaurant. Audio and guided tours are available for those with a passion for history. More information regarding tours and ways to plan your visit can be found on the Grand Central Terminal website.

We visited the terminal for a nice dinner at the Oyster Bar. The terminal has a beautiful ceiling and it is nice to see people travelling in and out.

Perfect central location for meeting friends. Many places to grab a bite, beverage or to do a little shopping. The place is always busy!

Grand Central Station is always pack with people, all walks of life. I love sitting on the steps and just watch people passes by. I always take pictures inside this station no matter what month it is or what season.

Worth a visit and good food there. Go to the market below ground and find everything you would want to eat. It's a market that you can put your own choices together. Loved it
