  • At a minimum you should stop inside for just a minute to savor the immense concourse with its stars on the ceiling and the bustling crowds.  more »

  • Often seen in films this station shines for its cleanliness and quality of its marbled walls. It feels really within a film. Don't forget to find the Oster bar inside the station, behind you will find a place called "The whispering wall" where if one stops in a corner and speaking to the wall (well nearly), in the opposite corner a person can listen to it.
