  • Such a beautiful place. Have seen it in many movie's final act. Looks even more amazing in real life. Remember to look up when you get there, and see the stars on the ceiling. It's a must see location if you are touring New York. There is a lot of people walking in an out all the time. But, it is also an experience that's worth waiting there and watching.

  • This beautiful, lovingly restored passenger railroad terminal of yesteryear is a must-see if you are impressed by detailed architectural masterpieces or just want to see the people of New York City pass before you as they crisscross the region on the various rail lines that converge here. You'll catch a brief glimpse of the history that makes this city so unique just by looking around you as you walk throughout this grand structure. Take some photos to remember your visit and gaze up in amazement at the ceilings and chandeliers before you leave.

  • Very well-maintained given the immense volume of foot traffic. Nice selection of retail establishments, and eateries in the Main Concourse. Said eateries are high in price and low on quality, but it is rush service, so commuters generally overlook the disparity. Architectural masterwork all around. Train service is generally efficient, but throw in a few flakes of snow and you get Mogadishu, complete with stranded commuters. Homeless camped out in some areas of the terminal.

  • This train station is one of the biggest and best train stations I have ever gotten an opportunity to visit and experience. No wonder it attracts a big crowd has multiple trains to different cities. One of the downsides of this is it is really easy to get lost here and maybe lose your train when you’re in a hurry. That being said the architecture is really great and pleasing to the eyes. Multiple ticket counters and tracks make your travel experience really smooth and nice.

  • 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!
