  • I will defend the statement that public transportation in the United States pales in comparison to its fellow developed nations, but Grand Central Terminal is one of those places that makes me happy to use NY public transportation. It's an architectural marvel less iconic than the Empire State Building, but so much more aesthetic. The food options within and nearby are tempting. The staff are approachable & know their stuff.
  • Awe inspiring. Every time we visit Grand Central it a treat for the eyes and for the mind. The massiveness of the space is impressive. The cleanliness of the space is beyond impressive, considering the number of people that walk through this building every day. The staff are beyond helpful, and the amenities are vast and unique. A MUST visit when in NYC!
