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.

The structure of this train station is just magnificent. It is very near to the Chrysler Building, Empire State Building and Bryant Park. It is connected by almost all the subway lines and it especially has a shuttle that goes back and forth to Times Square

It is everything one would think it would be, the hustle of people, the outstanding architecture the fun of watching people along with taking care of one's needs, from food to clothing.

Amazing place to visit. Lots of restaurants and coffee shops within, and an amazing market that sold fruit meats cheeses and vegetables. Very Art Deco just amazing.

My husband grew up near NYC, so we have been to Grand Central many times. However, we had never taken the time to do the guided tour. It was extremely informative and led us to different sections of Grand Central that we have never seen. It was full of anecdotes, history, and architecture - it helps you look at Grand Central in a different light. The tour was reasonably priced and done very well. A nice half day activity in NYC.
