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.

“Great Landmark”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013 via mobile

Grand Central is one of the quintessential New York places. It has been portrayed in a number of great movies. Located on 42:nd street and Park Ave, this should be a stop on your tour of Manhattan. It is a great building and if you are in a mood for a great lunch stop by the Grand Central oyster bar for some delicious seafood.

“Good for a history lesson”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013 via mobile

This is a good lesson in history and artictecture. We did the audio tour for $8 a person. The tour window is open from 9am and is located in main floor right next to info center. I would recommend doing the audio to get the most of the place. In all, we enjoyed the site.
