Owner description: 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.

“Must see building when in New York City”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

The splendor and enormous size are breath taking. The hustle and bustle of all the commuters during rush hour is unbelievable. This is definitely a must see location when visiting New York City.

“Grand is correct!”
Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

I can see why it is called Grand, that it is! Anyone that comes to New York City should never miss out on a chance to see, take pictures, people watch, grab a bite to eat & take a ride on the subway! What an awesome place! The commodore was ahead of his time!

“Classic architecture and a must see”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

So many shops and a great way to travel and connect around the city. Even if you go just to look around you can spend hours at the specialty shops and just people watching

“A must see”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

You cant go to NYC and not visit Grand Central Station at least once. It is truly stunning. Make sure you go upstairs so you can view the entire concourse, great for people watching And make sure you visit the market on way out to get some lovely fresh fruit.
