About
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.

Icon of NYC
Dec. 2021
Had to visit as a famous icon of NYC. Spectacular with historic ticket booths. However, nowhere to sit and rest your tired feet unless you go into a coffee shop, could only see Cipriani.

Amazing
Nov. 2021
The first day we just toured the facility ; we got up the nerve and took the subway to Chinatown. A safe and fulfilling experience. Taking the subway is a little confusing but the terminal and the trip are something to talk about. The terminal is clean, has many eateries and a genuine experience.

Just wow!
Oct. 2021
Can't say enough: just go if you're in NYC! On this visit, we splurged on a scrumptious meal at Cipriani Dolce. The food was excellent, and we really got to appreciate the stunning architecture and decoration. I don't know if it's permanent, but there's also an Apple store inside. It's a very safe environment, so even if you just pop in to take a look, you'll be glad you did!

This building was nearly demolished, but some art lovers -Jackie Kennedy included- understood that it is a piece of art and fought for its conservation. Luckily they were successful and. Now we can admire this beautiful piece of architecture

A Temple to Trains
Nov. 2021
This place is a temple to splendid architecture and I am so thankful that it was saved from the wrecking ball. It's a practical place to catch a train to the suburbs, but it is also a place to linger and drink in the splendor. Some places to eat.

Beautiful renovation

Easy to use trains and get good food. Learned about the staff having to go underground to go in and out. The Ouster Bar is the oldest restaurant in Grand Central.
