  • Yes, this is a lovely big building but really there isn't much to it. Worth a visit if you're in the neighbourhood but I wouldn't go out of your way to come and see it as its just a big open hall...  more »
  • The most iconic and important train station in America. Beautiful, exalted, full of life, historic, one of the must experience places in NYC.  more »
  • It was great to finally see this beautiful place that I had seen in so many movies. It really is worth the trip to admire the architecture. Take a train if you need to, or visit the food court as...  more »
  • This is a train station, an art gallery, shopping & dining complex, events venue, tourist attraction and has a fixed historic landmark status. This beloved Grand Station of NYC was taken for granted back in the day and was very close to being torn down just like Penn Station until Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis stepped in and saved it. Otherwise all New Yorkers would be travelling underground like other rats in the city. Also what you see today with your open mouths is a glittering, shining marble building but it took 12 years of restoration to remove decades of pollution, grime and gunk that covered its beautiful ceiling. After all it is in New York.
  • Ah, Grand Central Station. It's grand, and it's central!
  • Grand Central Pandemia time New York
  • This store is relatively a small store comparing with other stores like 5h avenue or downtown Brooklyn store. The service was great but stricter than 5th avenue store. I have been to both store. Grand central apple store doesn’t let you wander around store when you are picking up a product. But other than that, they were really friendly. Customer service is very good. The grand central station makes this store look amazing. Overall 5 stars!
  • The name speaks for itself. It's massive, spacious, and beautiful. It also has a bunch of cool quirks, like the whispering gallery near the Oyster Bar. Overall, it is a great place to be. I rate it 4 stars because to be honest if the original NY Penn Station was still up it would give this station a run for its money. Still a good place though.
