Grand Central Terminal

Grand Central Terminal

Grand Central Terminal is one of the most historic train stations in New York City, serving as a major transportation hub for the Subways as well as the originating point for commuter trains traveling to Upstate New York or Connecticut. Located on East 42nd Street and Park Avenue in Midtown Manhattan, the palatial train station is worth visiting just for its beautiful architecture and the rich NYC history contained within its walls. The station houses over 40 train platforms, all underground, while the terminal itself boasts beautiful interior spaces and upscale establishments. In the Main Concourse, where the ticket and information booths are located, you will find the information booth, famous for the 4-Faced Clock that sits atop, allowing passengers to read the time from anywhere in the huge room. The vaulted ceiling in the Main Concourse is painted with astronomical constellations, and in the winter there are light shows on the ceiling. You can enjoy a meal at one of the upscale restaurant such as the historic Oyster Bar, or grab a bite in the food court. Don’t leave without visiting the famous “whispering wall,” a curious architectural phenomenon found on the way to the lower concourse. Four large archways meet here, and if you and a friend stand catty-corner to each other on either end of the arch, you can whisper into the stone wall and it will be heard crystal clear all the way on the other side! One of many mysteries housed in the majestic old Grand Central Terminal.
