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.

There are thousands of peeps who walk through here daily. Did you know most of them are tourists @ not commuters. You MUST look at the ceiling & turn 360 to get everything taken in. Awesome.

That’s a very beautiful place. We had breakfast here while watching the New Yorkers going to work and after that we jumped on the subway. Nice experience

What a great place to tour. Take the tour and look behing the scene, tremendous.
Investigate the food court, oyster bar i wad told is good (i dont like sea food) but i take their eotd for it.
In the main part, look for the dark patch left for you to see what the age and smoke did to it.
Fantastic old building for me it had the wow factor.
