  • I normally get off the train at Grand Central but I've never bothered to go upstairs where the real beauty is until today so I decided to go upstairs in the room where there were tons of people. the room was large and filled with conversations from all walks of life. P.S If you're looking for the restrooms they are downstairs in the dining hall. When you look up at the ceiling you'll see the constellations and if you look up at the windows and across the room (Depending on what time of the day it is) You'll see beautiful rays of sunshine coming through the windows and it just makes the room look so magical! The architecture of this building is amazing and it has a historical look and feel to it. I was in complete awe of this place and will definitely return to see this beautiful building once again.

  • I love GC. Good signage, organic snacks and great coffee for your morning rush, then on the way home hit up Grand Central Market for a culinary delight! A full gourmet market with steaks, spices, coffee roasters,fish, cheese and fresh produce. Stop by Financier for an amazing dessert, or the Nordic food court for dinner. If you're in a hurry my favourite place is Juice Press, fully organic juices and smoothies. Amazing!

  • World class station. Bright beautiful with the iconic clock amazing ceiling & rich in history. Apple, Michael Jordan's the North Hall the Food Court & all the other vendors keep you busy even though you are in NYC & busy already. Spot the wedding photographers & try to find the tennis courts!

  • Such a fantastic building in the middle of the city.. super. Great place to pick up that essential quirky gift to bring home, or get something to eat, or marvel at the architecture, or watch humanity go by, or catch a train. I've been here many times and I still look forward to the next time already.😊😊

  • 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.
