Owner description: Grand Central Terminal is the most extraordinary public space in New York City. Opened to the public in 1913, this historic train terminal is a world-famous landmark in Midtown. Its rich history is a story of immense wealth and great engineering. Grand Central is one of the busiest train stations in the world, with approximately 750,000 visitors every day. It is the home of Metro-North Railroad, a subway station, iconic restaurants, shops, and the world's most alluring Apple Store. Some of the highlights to see along your tour of Grand Central include the opal-faced clock, valued at $20 million, above the Information Booth, the Largest Tiffany Glass Clock in the World below the 48-foot, 1500-ton Transportation statue overlooking 42nd Street at Park Avenue, and the mystifying acoustics of the Whispering Gallery in front of the Oyster Bar and Restaurant. Audio and guided tours are available for those with a passion for history. More information regarding tours and ways to plan your visit can be found on the Grand Central Terminal website.

Look up & around. There are so many hidden gems and secret nooks and crannies, you'll need a guidebook to point them all out.

We saw this as part of our Subway Tour by Gary and it was an amazing finish to a great tour. The architecture is spectacular and it's such an iconic site from film and history that you have to check it out at least once!

Beautiful architecture and lovely atmosphere early in the morning. Worth exploring, and restrooms are clean and free and open from 8am.

The years long restoration of the station looks beautiful. I only wish they still had the HUGH Kodak Pictures back for all to enjoy. That WAS part of the stations history for decades as well as meeting someone near the information booth in the center of the floor. For those that see it for the first time, get a book about its history and learn about its unseen history. It will be with bth.

If you are in the area, stop in and take a look at the main hall in Grand Central Terminal. Beautiful architecture especially on the ceiling. Lots of shops and places to eat too.
