Grand Central Terminal
A beautiful piece of architecture, Grand Central Station was restored in 1994 after being taken over by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. It is a busy center in New York with trains running from the Metro-North and Harlem lines with bus service and entrance to the 4, 5, 6 subway lines. The Grand Concourse is a magnificent sight with its giant windows and a large ceiling covered in constellations and astrological signs. If you look closely, you may realize that all of the constellations are backwards, and you may also spot the single black brick which was left uncleaned after the renovations to show how much grime had been covering the walls. If you are in the city during the winter season, be sure to check out the holiday light show that occurs on the ceiling.
There is also a dining area below the main concourse with many different food stations. Grand Central houses a food market and several retail shops. It has everything to entertain you while waiting for that train. See if you can find the archway which allows you to whisper secrets to your friends waiting by the opposite arch!
