Overview

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.

I think this place is always super busy. Great for shopping and lots of food options. Quite easy to navigate with all the signs and the staff was very helpful when we needed directions

food plaza is crowded and way too hot. The only thing I would buy would be an icecream to cool down.

The architecture is impressive. My favorite is the hawk at the entrance. Due to traffic and construction we couldn't get good pictures

This place doesn't disappoint all the old architecture from a forgotten era, the sounds of the trains being called just like in the films! Three days we went through it and still don't think we seen it all.

not sure how far the actual store is but Penn Station is likely your best option from BWI to NYC. Once at Penn Station take a cab--faster.
