The Grand Central Terminal (also known as the Grand Central Station) is in Midtown Manhattan. It is a passenger station, serving much of the north-eastern United States. Grand Central Station is the third busiest passenger station in North America. It has a connection to the New York subway system. The station is quite spectacular. You have to keep your wits about you, the station can be confu sing.

I’m a life long Jersey girl but this was my first time in Grand Central. Due to the pandemic situation there were no formal tours offered but I downloaded the grand central tour app (OPHRYs Systems) and this was perfect. I think it cost $4.99. We each wore one ear bud and we’re able to take tour together. Without this it still would have been a nice visit but I would definitely have missed certain aspects and certainly not have learned the history of this iconic landmark/terminal.

Absolutely iconic. For weeks I arrived here coming from Yonkers. Unbelievable central hall, but even more so I love the underground structure of shops and walkways.

The Grand Central Terminal is undisputedly the world’s most famous and one of the most visited transportation hub, and undoubtedly a premier cultural, shopping and dining destination of New York City. In May of 2018, I brought and treated my wife, and myself for a guided tour of Grand Central Terminal to celebrate our Happy Four Relationship Anniversary. Our tour guide did a great job in providing us with a wonderful tour experience of this amazing National Historic Landmark. Our tour guide comprehensively discussed the operation and management of Grand Central Terminal, detailed the station’s rich history and it’s connection with the Vanderbilt Family, whom initially developed and owned the Terminal. Our tour guide also addressed and highlighted the station’s major attractions, such as the Main Concourse Sealing, the Information Booth Clock, the Whispering Gallery, the Tiffany Clock which is surrounded by the statues of Greek gods, Mercury, Hercules and Minerva. Our tour guide also pointed out the statue of Cornelius Vanderbilt, a 19th Century prominent and wealthy shipping and railroad business magnate, the patriarch of the Vanderbilt Family and the principal builder of Grand Central. Both my wife and I very much enjoyed our visit and tour of Grand Central Terminal. If you are a History Aficionado, admirer of railroads, and beautiful architecture and sculptures, then you should definitely visit and tour this outstanding world famous attraction!!!
