Overview

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.

I always worry when I have high expectations of some where that it's not going to live up to expectations. Grand Central met and exceeded mine. We first went early on a Sunday morning, having arrived late Saturday night our body clocks were on UK...More

We were amazed at how grand and beautiful the building was - what a clock and ceiling. We had seen the station on a TV program beforehand, it was everything they had described.

A friend and I wanted to see Grand Central Terminal and it was well worth the cab ride. In so many movies; great to see it in person. Such history and loved the architecture.

Possibly our favourite place in NYC, but we aren't interested in trains. It is Grand, it is Central and it is a station but it is so much more... Thanks to Jackie O, our kids have fell in love with this place just like us....More

but unlike other central stations in big cities this one is rather quiet. A good place to relax and observe the hustle and bustle.

We visited the terminal for a nice dinner at the Oyster Bar. The terminal has a beautiful ceiling and it is nice to see people travelling in and out.

Grand Central Station is always pack with people, all walks of life. I love sitting on the steps and just watch people passes by. I always take pictures inside this station no matter what month it is or what season.
