Grand Central Station

The Midtown Grand Central Terminal

The true name of Grand Central Station is Grand Central Terminal, a spot-on landmark in Midtown Manhattan.

Located on 42nd Street and Park Avenue, this is one of the busiest train stations in the world, and serves nearly 200.000 commuters every day. Built in 1871, Grand Central Terminal is home to 44 train platforms, several great NY restaurants, and some of the most beautiful Beaux-Arts architecture in the city.

Since 1871, Grand Central Station has undergone several restorations and renovations. One of its masterpieces is the huge astronomical mural that you can appreciate if you look at the ceiling. Also, a large part of Grand Central Terminal’s facade is decorated with art statues, brilliant bronze and gold accents.

Cool Tip: If you want to see the old color of the Grand Central ceiling before the last restoration, there's still one tile that remains near the Michael Jordan Steakhouse NY Restaurant.
