Grand Central Terminal, New York City Reviews

  • Absolutely beautiful! The floors, walls, every intricate detail is absolutely beautiful. Grand Central Station was definitely one of the highlights of my trip. There’s an area in the station where you and another person can go to opposite corners, talk to the wall, and the other person will hear you. That was amazing! There’s a uniquely made clock in the main part that’s said to be worth about 16 million dollars. The station has plenty of food choices and slightly resembled an airport, with signs directing you to various terminals. If you have time, please go and take a stroll. You won’t regret it!

  • The beaux-arts style of architecture makes New York City's Grand Central Terminal a historic, iconic and opulent landmark and transportation hub in Midtown Manhattan. Also known as The Terminal, its starry-skied, high ceilings give the building majestic vibes! Besides its fascinating history which dated back to its public opening in 1913, the train terminal has many amazing bars and restaurants. If you are looking for a quick bite, Shake Shack is a great choice! Inside the world famous and well-known Grand Central Terminal, the "Whispering Gallery" near the Oyster Bar and Restaurant is one of its alluring secrets. Its acoustical marble allows a person's whisper to travel across the curves of the hemispherical ceiling to another person.

  • Beautiful architecture and reminder of the grand style of the previous century. A very well restored and maintained gem with popular retail and dining options. The celestial ceiling is nothing short of amazing. I recall laser light shows that were cast way up into the stars ✨!!! I believe there are guided tours and must make time to learn more about this massive historic timepiece.

  • This is a very beautiful terminal with delicate wall and ceilings. I read some interesting secrets about the Grand Central Terminal before visiting , for example, there is a mysterious corner where you can hear another person whisper in the diagonal corner, and there is a hole on the ceiling because they exhibited a rocket inside the hall. Totally worth visiting, but not very safe to stay for a long time, still highly recommended.

  • Grand Central Station is one of THE iconic New York landmarks! I hadn't been here in something like five years, but due to train track infrastructure work I was brought through here on a recent trip. It excited me to arrive in my favorite city and home state via this beautiful terminal. We are so fortunate that this amazing building was restored years back and saved from demolition. This is such an amazing place compared to New York's other main train station Penn, which is a vagrant filled dump. There is a neat food court here with lots of yummy looking eateries, perfect spot to grab a bite while waiting for your train. Even if you aren't taking a train it's worth poking your head in here to see the architecture of this stunning building. Be sure to take a peek at the ceiling too!
