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.

Grand Central Station truly is amazing to see. We took a trip here to see it as it was on our list of things to see. It is a huge station that was built beautifully. Definitely makes for good photography if your in to that. The ceilings reach high up and are painted with pretty designs. The lighting in here is great to see too. This station has been in featured in so many different movies it's hard not to picture yourself emersed in one of them! We took the metro from here to financial district. It gets very busy but there are information desks who will happily guide you in the right direction as you can get lost.

Just have a quick look when you pass by. No need to visit deliberately. With no offense, this is a huge central station but the architecture is... not so decorative when you compare it to central stations at Prague or Budapest. It has got a couple of nice restaurants for quick bite though. Shake shack there has a pretty tiny line.
