This is a train station, an art gallery, shopping & dining complex, events venue, tourist attraction and has a fixed historic landmark status. This beloved Grand Station of NYC was taken for granted back in the day and was very close to being torn down just like Penn Station until Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis stepped in and saved it. Otherwise all New Yorkers would be travelling underground like other rats in the city. Also what you see today with your open mouths is a glittering, shining marble building but it took 12 years of restoration to remove decades of pollution, grime and gunk that covered its beautiful ceiling. After all it is in New York.

The Grand Central Terminal (also known as the Grand Central Station) is in Midtown Manhattan. It is a passenger station, serving much of the north-eastern United States. Grand Central Station is the third busiest passenger station in North America. It has a connection to the New York subway system. The station is quite spectacular. You have to keep your wits about you, the station can be confu sing.

I’m a life long Jersey girl but this was my first time in Grand Central. Due to the pandemic situation there were no formal tours offered but I downloaded the grand central tour app (OPHRYs Systems) and this was perfect. I think it cost $4.99. We each wore one ear bud and we’re able to take tour together. Without this it still would have been a nice visit but I would definitely have missed certain aspects and certainly not have learned the history of this iconic landmark/terminal.

Absolutely iconic. For weeks I arrived here coming from Yonkers. Unbelievable central hall, but even more so I love the underground structure of shops and walkways.
