Grand Central Station was built in 1913 and is located at Park Avenue and E 42nd Street. It's known to be the World's largest railway station, and also the busiest in the USA. After a 4 year renovation completed in 1998, it has restored this landmark to its former splendour. The ceilings are very high, and I rather enjoyed just strolling around the terminal for a bit as its got a nice atmosphere, and it was also good for getting out of the rain.

Its also right next to the Chrysler Building so you can kill 2 birds with one stone by seeing the 2 landmarks in one go.

Please be advised that it can be very busy during the evening rush from 16:30 - 19:30.

Address: 42nd St & Park Ave.
