Owner description: 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.

It is a terminal. Building itself is OK, but nothing special. Huge marble interior brings the cold and unfriendly feeling.

We grabbed cafe style breakfast here and walked around, make sure you go to the whispering corner too!

Grand Central is a major transit hub and as it was very close to our hotel, my wife and I used it frequently. Initially it can be quite intimidating as the location of the subway, ticket machines and other areas can be hard to find. The people at the information booth were very friendly and informative and it did not take us long to get up to speed with where everything was. Logistics aside, it is a very visually impressive station and one must take the time to take it all in and appreciate it. Definitely worth a stop.
