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 is a really nice old train station, hopefully you can find a way to use it rather than Penn Station but that is not always possible. Regardless, if this type of activity, classic architecture, is something you appreciate and enjoy, this place will not disappoint. It has a food area as well that has the great butcher shop, and bakery, even if you go there, walkthrough, and then have a bite to eat you will have gotten to see the Grandeur of an era gone by.

The legendary Oyster Bar sits feets away from an electic food court with a 'shopoing arcade' that includes Tiffany & Co., Apple, shoe shine shops and newstands in this landmark 'train station'. The painted astronomical skyscape in the ceiling of the grand concourse is as the hustle and bustle below.

Marvellous visit. 30 yrs since my last. Magical...clean and classic.
Must see. Food court being redeveloped so bit disappointing on the lunch front. Must visit and it's free

One to add onto your itinerary for NYC. Great photo opps in and outside. There are also some great little eateries downstairs, perfect place to refuel with a juice, coffee or cupcake.
