  • Grand Central Station in New York City is a must-see destination for anyone visiting the city. The historical experience of walking through the grand halls and taking in the beautiful architecture is truly breathtaking. From the grand marble staircases to the iconic Main Concourse ceiling, the attention to detail in the design is impressive. The station is not just a transportation hub but also a popular tourist spot, where visitors can take a tour, visit the food court or shopping area. The architecture of the building is just as impressive outside as it is inside. It is a great place to take a walk around and see the city from a different perspective. Overall, Grand Central Station is a must-see destination in New York City for its historical significance and beautiful architecture.
  • I will defend the statement that public transportation in the United States pales in comparison to its fellow developed nations, but Grand Central Terminal is one of those places that makes me happy to use NY public transportation. It's an architectural marvel less iconic than the Empire State Building, but so much more aesthetic. The food options within and nearby are tempting. The staff are approachable & know their stuff.
