Overview
More
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.

When you are in NYC you probably should visit the grand central terminal. Its a historical site but not a lot to see. Probably just take some pictures and check the site and leave.

Glad we found this. Love the hustle and bustle, always busy. Plenty of places to eat and drink downstairs. Really enjoyed the Whispering Gallery (by The Oyster Bar) which actually works!

Hi Gina G -- please visit Metro-North Railroad's website to view Train Schedules. You will want to look at the Hudson line for train times to Beacon, NY.

not sure how far the actual store is but Penn Station is likely your best option from BWI to NYC. Once at Penn Station take a cab--faster.
