What to Expect
The story of Grand Central Terminal is that of New York City itself: the structure embodies the social, cultural, economic and technological evolution around it. It is one of great men, feuding architects, ingenuity, rejuvenation, secrets and surprises. On this tour, you will hear stories about what once was, what could have been, and what can be; about the struggle to save and restore Grand Central as preserved icon of past, and of challenge to ensure that it serves New York’s future. You will see what it was like in the booming age of the railroad, as a rundown embarrassment, and as a renovated jewel at the center of the city. Explore the interesting and unique spaces produced for and by it. Whether you pass through it every day on your morning commute or it’s your first time in the Beaux Arts beauty, you are sure to leave having learned, seen, or experienced something new and extraordinary.

Some of the highlights of the tour are:
• Peeking into the entrance of the glass walkways
• Locating its lost armchairs and learn many more of its secrets
• Learn about Grand Central Terminal’s backwards ceiling and see its hidden tennis courts

Toured for a mother’s day weekend activity. I have lived in the city for almost 20 years and it was her first time seeing Grand Central - we loved the tour. Our guide was knowledgeable, informative and fun. The whisper room is a must!
