Grand Central Terminal
Built in 1913, Grand Central Terminal is impressive even to New Yorkers, particularly the massive main hall with its cathedral-like vaulted ceiling. The building is beautiful with chic shops and a food court lending an air of urban charm, not an easy feat for a railway station that is filled with a half million commuters each week. The bar at Michael Jordan's The Steak House overlooks the busy terminal. Dine at the legendary Oyster Bar for great shellfish. The Vanderbilt Hall within the station is also the site of numerous cultural events, so check out the website for the latest in the station's support of artistic endeavors. The station services outlying suburbs via the Metro-North Commuter Railroad.
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.
Our City Sights tour guide took us off the bus to Grand Central Terminal. My first thought was to stay on the bus, but WOW what I would have missed!!! It is absolutely beautiful. For some reason I had a vision of a dark and dreary place - so not the case!!! Amazing!
Also reminds me of Victoria Station a little bit in London. Love the crowds, the Dining Court, the market, and the architecture. Don't forget to go outside and stand across the street for a photo of the golden clock at the top of the builidng.
Of all the places in New York City, Grand Central is clearly a favorite for many. If you take a minute to stop, you can observe so much about New York and its culture. You’ll see people who are old, young, short, tall, fat, and or skinny. You’ll also see people who are in a rush to get to there destination, and those who are there just to enjoy the view. Grand Central is a large and beautiful place, so large that I often find myself spotting something new in the terminal on a daily basis. The high ceiling in the main concourse known as the The Sky Ceiling is a work of art ,so much so that you should worry about whip lash.

All Marble. The constellation's on the ceiling were great. Huge Huge spacious. And the marble made it great. We took a train into the Station. And had a blast all the way. People making out in subway but. In the actual Terminal. It was just ordinary New Yorker's Rushing to Work or wherever they needed to go. The style of this building is something everyone should see.
Since Grand Central Station was on alot of "things to see" in New YOrk my family and I figured, its just a train station, so we put it off til our last day in the city. We figured stop in take a look and leave. My wife suggested we try the audio tour which my kids seem to love at all the museums, so I figured why not. We ended up spending the whole day at this beautiful building. The audio tour was full of historic information and all kinds of fun little secrets, it was super cheap as well. If you visit this wonderful building, take the Audio Tour!!!
I recently visited the USA for the first time and went with my nephew to New York via Grand Central.
Grand Central was easily the most beautiful thing I saw that day. It's beauty is jaw-dropping.
I am so glad it was saved from the bulldozers.
