AOL Travel Editor’s Review

What is this…Grand Central Station? We’ve all asked this question when we’re in a suddenly and unexpectedly busy place. Now go see where it originated and you’ll catch the true meaning of this bustling transportation hub, as a whopping 750,000 people pass through the station every day. Yes, you say, it’s only a train station. But it’s quite a majestic one, indeed. Roman-style vaults may impress, but visitors are awed by the starry sky of an arched ceiling in the main ticket hall. Built in 1913, Grand Central is the dream of Cornelius Vanderbilt. Unlike once-glorious, now decrepit Penn Station, Grand Central still shines, fresh as the day Vanderbilt conceived it.

  Definitely one of the must sees when in NY. The architecture is awesome and there are now great shops and restaurants. The ceiling was cleaned several years ago to reveal some great work. There are still two tiles that they never cleaned so you can see how the ceiling looked before the cleaning. It's pretty amazing. Definitely try to find them. Enjoy!...   Read More
