This is an absolutely beautiful building. We went here and people watched in the evening. it was lovely so see and it's been in so many films it was a must see for us. Lots of places to eat in.

I loved revisiting Grand Central Station, it never fails to disappoint for the mass numbers of people that traffic through here daily the terminal building is spotlessly clean because it is so spacious you don’t realise how many people are there at the one time....More

A very impressive build across 2 floors. The architecture for a train station is unbelievable. The main hall is very big. Would suggest visiting downstairs as well as the main concourse

If you are in the locale then visit this superb station. A real throwback in time and its so much more than a station. We stumbled into an Apple store above the main concourse and then a lovely food market.

You will be familiar with this place as it has been in 100's of films. Only 3 stars as there are more impressive locations I would visit before here if time was limited

Busy or what, just like everywhere in New York, totally frantic. Brilliant place to see all of the architecture and obviously access to the trains etc.

A beautiful building which is a NYC ‘must do’. However, the food hall is full of self service eateries - no decent restaurants.

Go and walk through and enjoy the ambience , so sad the original Penn Station is gone. Classical design and features make it a joy to behold, so much better than modern designs.

Every time I visit I’m amazed by the beauty of Grand Central Station. The market is especially nice too and a great place to grab some food
