The name in itself says it all, this place is grand. It is amazing how much is here, it is so much more than a terminal. You can grab a train or subway to nearly anywhere you would like to go. This is definitely an iconic place to visit and explore. The architecture here is amazing and beautiful. There is food and shopping. You wouldn't even know from looking on the outside what all is inside. The terminal itself is connected to other buildings. It goes on forever. There is no words to describe how extensive it is here, you could get lost in her for days. I wish I wasn't so limited on time when I was in NYC and had more time to explore. This is definitely one place I would love to come back explore grab a bite to eat and read more into the history of the terminal. Do yourself a favor and make sure to stop by here even if just for a little bit. It is well worth your time.
I love this old station -- it's a great place to take the kids for some respite from the weather if you're touring during rainy or cold weather. The food court downstairs is pretty decent, but the atmosphere of the station itself is what makes this place so special. Take in the high windows and decorated ceilings in the main hall. The train staff are happy to pose for photos, and you can make it out onto the platforms to look at the trains without a ticket. Plus -- bathrooms! Always a plus in NYC.
Quintessential New York experience. I recommend Grand Central terminal to any tourist who has not already seen it. Be sure to go during the rush hour 5 to 6 p.m. to see the hordes of people rushing to get home. I live in New York City and still enjoy watching from the mezzanine level.
It's Grand Central and worth spending an hour or two exploring. They have a farmers market hall with great baked goods, local meat and fruit. The people watching here is unbeatable. Try to find the black patch on the ceiling. This past check was left untouched from the restoration, and it shows you how dirty the ceiling used to be when the allowed smoking in the terminal for all those years.
Worth Seeing. This is better than as seen in many movies and TV shows. The main floor is impress, walking around one finds a great fresh food market, a great food court. If you are in the area, definitely worth a visit and walk around.
