  • A building steeped in history and the services that exist to enjoy are very good, very good.

  • The Grand central terminal is beautifully kept and fully operational but worth spending some time to have a look around and stop for some great food and drinks so many bars and eateries to choose from  more »
  • The station Mola already by itself. There was filmed the untouchables of eliott ness. I went for lunch to an Italian pretty cool that there is.

  • Two big station to Marine Lines and too much crowd always you can see from the hair station start add entry of the gate and the place is too busy always cloudy well maintained cleaned staff clean a platform as you can see .... Nice place to visit with your family friends and loved ones and job holidays and pick new station
  • It's well preserved and maintained public facilities, despite of the age. Great architecture, love it.
  • Grand Central Terminal and Grand Central Station are one and the same and Maps order merge the into one keeping the name of Grand Central Terminal because that is what it is a terminal. I have a more detailed review about the terminal on the Grand Central Station entry.
  • Cool place. Really busy, esp during peak hours (obviously). Not much to do or see there if you're just checking the place out as a tourist
  • One of the must sees in NYC. Lots of shops and places to eat. But the real star is the architecture. There are lots of people standing around taking pictures so be careful not to run into them.
