Visited Grand Central Terminal in March 2004 and thought it was spectacular. We've all seen the building in photos and on film but it doesn't prepare you for how stunning it actually is. We visited at lunchtime and tried out one of the dining cafes/restaurants...More

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.

Grand Central Terminal, made of limestone, is like a good bed time story. Walk inside and get under the covers.

You see it in the movies all the time. Definitely worth walking through even if you don't need the train service. It's beautiful, old time architecture.
