Grand Central Terminal reviews
Incredible location with art all over the ceilings. Very busy place. Tons of shops and centrally located for subway trains. more »
Yes, this is a lovely big building but really there isn't much to it. Worth a visit if you're in the neighbourhood but I wouldn't go out of your way to come and see it as its just a big open hall... more »
This is a train station, an art gallery, shopping & dining complex, events venue, tourist attraction and has a fixed historic landmark status. This beloved Grand Station of NYC was taken for granted back in the day and was very close to being torn down just like Penn Station until Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis stepped in and saved it. Otherwise all New Yorkers would be travelling underground like other rats in the city. Also what you see today with your open mouths is a glittering, shining marble building but it took 12 years of restoration to remove decades of pollution, grime and gunk that covered its beautiful ceiling. After all it is in New York.
Ah, Grand Central Station. It's grand, and it's central!
