A must do whilst in NY. Doesn't take long to just go and have a quick look and enjoy the beautiful building and its ceilings. Google how to speak to each other through the corner of the wall in the station, its super cool!

Wow, you see this for years on TV and in films, we couldn’t come across from the UK and not visit here. A very beautiful building and if you’re actually travelling from there is surprisingly easy to do. A must see if you’re visiting NYC

What an amazing building. The architecture is simply stunning. The ceiling alone is incredible depicting constellations. It's clean and accessible. There must be as many tourists there as commuters. It's free to enter and we'll worth a visit.
