    GRAND CENTRAL TERMINAL

    The Main Concourse

    The Main Concourse of the terminal is a vast pedestrian area. Its high vaulted ceiling is dominated by 3 great arched windows. The grand staircase and its marble steps make great impression, plus, there is more marbles there then just the steps.

    This is one of my favourite buildings anywhere. The hall is simply beautiful and takes your breath away. Have a drink in the bar that overlooks the hall, and then wander around the other parts - food hall etc. If you like architecture you really should visit. It's just a shame that only suburban trains go from here now, as this building deserves to remain the gateway to America.

    Try to take a look at Grand Central Station. I took a picture of the outside, but you really need to go in and look at the recent renovations - the interior is quite spetacular!

    Again, brings back visions of some old movies that may have been filmed here! :) You may have to pass through here if you're riding the subways, so maybe get out and take a look. It's kind of neat inside and out, and very large! It's a terminus for many trains and subways, still.

    Restored to its original form in the past few years,Grand Central is well worth a visit for eating,shopping,or admiring the architecture.There is a small cocktail lounge on the West Balcony to enjoy the view with a drink.An excellent gourmet food market is located near the Lexington Avenue end,and the lower level has a food court.For one of the city's best kept secrets,find the Oyster Bar on the lower level.Just outside the entrance,stand facing one of the four corners and have a friend do the same diagonally.Speak softly toward the wall and the acoustics carry your voice to your friend on the other side like a telephone.Really cool !

    Grand Central Station

    One of the most iconic train stations in the US. Grand Central was built in 1831 and still serves today as a major train terminus.

    What a Grand sight

    by UK_GUY_LOVES_VEGAS Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Again another must see architectural wonder. To every day commuters it may just be a terminal, but to tourists its another spectacular sight.

    Picture's a bit dark but you have to go and see the terminal after its been restored to its former glory. One thing to watch out for is the beautiful ceiling. Gorgeous!

    The Central Station in New York is a very beautiful building.

    From here you can catch the trains, buses and the metro.

    This station is the backdrop of many movie scenes that are filmed here. The trains go to other states and other parts of NY. Its a very nice station with many nice restaurants, shops inside.

    Be sure to visit the renovated Great Hall of Grand Central Station. The picture is of the former Pan Am building and the clock and statuary on the top of Grand Central.
