Grand Central Station

The century-old Grand Central Station, commonly referred to as “Grand Central”, is one of the most treasured and iconic landmarks of New York City. It is located at Park Avenue and 42nd street in Midtown Manhattan, and serves as the city’s premier commuter rail terminal. This colossal structure has 44 platforms, with 67 tracks (41 above, 26 below ground), and covers an area of 190,000 square metres, making it the largest railway station in the world. Grand Central attracts over 21 million visitors annually, and was “the world’s 6th most-visited tourist attraction” in a 2011 ‘Travel + Leisure’ magazine survey.

  • Look up to the most recognizable symbol of Grand Central Station; the spectacular, 38 metre-high clock in the cavernous main concourse, with its 4 multi-million dollar opal-made faces.
  • Feast on delicious seafood specials under the domed, Guastavino-tiled ceiling of the historic 1913‘Oyster Bar& Restaurant’, the most treasured landmark on the culinary circuit of New York City.
  • Whisper sweet nothings from one corner below the large, arched entryway of Grand Central’s ‘Whispering Gallery’ New York City and get bowled over when your loved one hears them clearly at the opposite corner.

As the world’s largest terminus, expect midtown Manhattan’s Grand Central Station to be well-connected by bus, car, taxi, and, obviously, by train. Multiple metro and suburban trains from the city’s 4 neighbouring boroughs and outlying areas, including long- distance trains from many major cities across the US serve Grand Central. Regular buses from La Guardia and Newark, the nearest airports, also link to New York City from where this station can be accessed by car and taxi, and even on foot. Daily commuter trains from upstate New York, northern areas of the city and Connecticut also run to Grand Central.
