Grand Central Terminal is the most beautiful Beaux-Arts architecture and historic landmark in New York. In early summer this year, I finally had the opportunity to visit Grand Central on my fourth visit to the city.
Grand Central turns 100 on Feb. 2. Much more than a transportation hub, this New York City icon draws more than 200,000 visitors a day, making Grand Central the sixth most visited tourist destination in the world. This slide show offers some unique insights into the terminal: both its iconic and lesser known places.
Seeing Grand Central is only a fraction of the experience. Touring it with Dan Brucker brings the terminal to life. His sentences boom with emphasis, filling the 22,000 feet of the main concourse with his excitement.
