Description

Grand Central Terminal is one of New York City’s most famous landmarks. The terminal opened in 1913, after about 10 years of construction. Over the years, the terminal suffered deterioration and possible demolition. But the city wasn’t going to let Grand Central suffer this fate. In the 1960′s, the terminal was designated an historical landmark, despite some serious opposition. In the 1990′s, the terminal was completely renovated and is now quite the midtown destination. Grand Central Terminal is home to five fine restaurants, twenty casual restaurants, and about fifty unique specialty shops. The terminal hosts large public events in its 12,000 square foot Vanderbilt Hall. To see this great terminal up close, you can take a self-guided walking tour or a one-hour private guided tour. If you choose the self-guided tour, visit the Grand Central Terminal’s official website (using the link below) to print out a great itinerary for your tour. If you choose the guided tour, be sure to book at least 2-3 weeks early. More information and booking options are found on the official website. And while you’re in the main terminal, be sure to look up at the spectacular ceiling, an astronomical mural painted by Paul Helleu.Grand Central Terminal is one of New York City’s most famous landmarks.
