Grand Central Terminal
Built in 1913, Grand Central Terminal remains impressive even to New Yorkers, particularly for its massive main hall with cathedral-like vaulted ceilings. The building itself is beautiful with chic shops and a food court lending an air of urban charm; a not so easy feat for a railway station that is filled with half a million commuters each week. If hungry, head to the bar at Michael Jordan's The Steak House N.Y.C. which overlooks the busy terminal, but if you crave shellfish, dine at the legendary Oyster Bar . Vanderbilt Hall within the station also forms the venue for numerous cultural events. Along with regular routes, the station services outlying suburbs via the Metro-North Commuter Railroad.
This place is absolutely beautiful. There are a TON of places to eat, it's almost like a mall food court, but with REALLY GOOD FOOD. Very clean and busy, but not too busy. It has a good atmosphere. Great place to go even if you're not taking a train anywhere.
it has everything in one place-transportation-
historic beauty-great food -shopping for anything from toothbrush-detergent to elegant gifts. the one place not to miss when in NYC. the heart and soul of a great city.
This was a interesting train ride. Yes, it's a famous spot in the city, but it was the most decent. There was a few things that was alittle annoying. There was a guy that kept singing, and askin' for money. LOL, well, that WAS pretty funny. Overall, this IS a station to travel.
I stayed at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, which was located across the street from Union Station, so I visited it several times during my stay and loved it.
It's a beautiful building, with lots to see. There are many places to eat and shops throughout and it was almost always bustling with activity.
I'd read good things about the Oyster Bar, but decided to skip it and try their food court. I visited twice, and the first time tried a Chinese place (whos name I cannot remember right now), and it was slightly spicier then what I'd expected, but not bad if you're in the mood for Chinese (there is only one Chinese place in the food court).
The second time I tried Two Boots Pizza, which they told me was a mix of "Cajun meets Louisiana". I thought it was an interesting combination, so I got a pepperoni pizza. The pizzas only come in one size (and it's huge). You could order it with mild sauce, but I wanted the full experience and ordered it regularly, which was a mistake.
I found the pizza too spicy for me, and found the mixture of ingredients unagreeable. However, I saw other guest in my hotel with a pizza from there and they told me they loved it, so I suppose it's a matter of taste, as with all food places.
Overall, Grand Central Station was a great place to wander at least once, and they have a wide variety at their food court, which you shouldn't miss.
