No matter what else you do in NYC, walk into GCT. The main hub and ceiling are breathtaking!! Pictures don't capture the depth and breath of its beauty. Also, check out the plaque, just inside the main entrance, dedicating the area to Jacqueline Kennedy, who...More

A beautiful building, and so grand for a railway station. When we were there, there was a Christmas market on just inside the main entrance.

A little piece of New York that I’m glad we visited. Such a beautiful building, steeped in history and a lovely market inside too. You don’t need long here, but it’s definitely worth seeing.

After seeing this on tv so many times it was really impressive to visit. Whilst it was busy it wasn’t overcrowded. The ceilings are amazing (random I know) and they have a food hall downstairs too. Couldn’t find toilets though despite the signs.
