NEW YORK CITY | Grand Central Terminal opened its doors to the public on 2 February 1913 and today attracts over 22 million visitors and commuters each year. The historic beaux-arts listed terminal was saved from demolition in the 1960s (unlike nearby Penn Station) and is one of New York City’s most important landmarks.
Visitors to Grand Central Terminal can wander through and marvel at the grand architecture, and famous landmarks like the four-faced brass clock on top of the information booth in the Main Concourse. There are over 65 shops and 35 dining options here, including the famous and popular Oyster Bar.
It’s not just for visitors looking for something to do though. Grand Central Terminal is still one of the most important railway terminals in the United States. It serves commuters traveling to and from several counties in New York and Connecticut, and contains a connection to the New York City Subway.
