    The historic Grand Central Terminal encompasses shops, fine restaurants such as The Oyster Bar, the swank Campbell Apartments for cocktails, a dining concourse, and gourmet food emporium - all in addition  to being a major transportation hub for New York City and beyond.

    A classic hub. The huge main concourse is breathtaking, and there's even a hidden yet publicly accessible tennis court.

    Several people I know that have already visited NYC recommended we go to Grand Central Terminal. Well I have to say what a great disappointment it is. I was expecting hustle and bustle and some grandour but it was nothing like that and its tiny. Coming from the UK, you can find far more interesting train stations in the smallest of towns and any one of the main stations in London is stellar compared to here. Movie camera angles give a grossly over inflated impression.

    Well worth a look, building is amazing. Worth taking the walk to see the design of the ceiling, how high they are.

    When in NY this is a Must. Visit this station which was the location of different movies and you enter in a fairy time zone. The lights, the huge clock everything is related to the last century with a great atmosphere. And there are also a quantity of cafès and restaurant inside .... why do not try a glass of bubbling Champagne and some fresh oysters???

    What a building that stands out amongst the high rise that surround it a bit of New York's building style. The Grand is Grand

    We were amazed at this Terminal. This Terminal, with its outstanding vaulted sky ceiling and 60-ft arched windows, is one of the busiest and most beautiful train stations in the world. In 1913, Cornelius Vanderbilt created a colossal , 49-acre "city within a city" called The Grand Central Terminal. In 1998 this terminal was restored to its former glory. Outside is one of a kind with splendid architecture and inside is outstanding and unbelievable. Everywhere was covered in granite and marble with great chandeliers and large arched windows. Over 750,000 persons pass through this Terminal on a daily basis. We were given a self-guided audio tour of this Terminal to understand its extravagant building with its excellent and diverse services offered. A MUST-SEE while in New York.

    I can't describe how incredible this place is. You have to go there. I love Art Deco architecture but even if you are not a fan I still think you will marvel at the sight.

    Crowded with hurried people trying to get to their platforms. The information desk and other personnel were very helpful. Lots of eateries and shops!

    A beautiful and impressive train station steeped in history. As well as the main concourse make sure you take a look in the market and food courts. It is however worth noting that the grand appearance doesn't continue down to the platforms.

    We loved the visit and enjoyed learning about the history behind grand central. It's the largest train station in the world and it's absolutely gorgeous.

    We visited the station as part of our trip to NY. What an entrance! As soon as you get in, there is a small TV where the history of the station is scrolling. You can learn quite a lot from it. There is a conducted tour of the station at 1230 everyday. However, as we had come early, we did not take it. Its really nice standing in the main hall and soaking in the experience. When we came out, it was raining and we were trying to take a taxi near the entrance portico. But its not allowed to stop there and there is a taxi stand a little away. A cop helped us there.

    We went out of our way to transfer here because I wanted to see the terminal. I'm glad we did! It's beautiful and impressive, and I wish we had spent more time to enjoy it.
