This is one of the most amazing places in New York. The new food hall area has delicious offerings, and from now until Christmas there is a holiday merchants fair featuring many hand-made, local items.

The terminal is beautiful inside. It is huge and the architecture is beautiful. Definitely one of NYC's icons.

A scene from many a film that had to be seen in real time. A busy train station that had a bustling, busy atmosphere, I'm sure most of the people there were tourists! Worth the trip through it

Amazing building and a must on any N Y trip. Whilst the bar is expensive sit and watch the world go by over a beer or two. Such a stunning building and it makes you feel like your in an old movie

It's a MUST going to the Grand Central Terminal. And it's even better if you take the audio tour because otherwise, you wouldn't know many interesting facts. The architecture is beautiful and classic.
