It seems strange to list a railway station as a tourist destination but Grand Central should definitely be on everyone's "must see" list. Whilst maintaining its role as one of New York's main rail transit stations this stunning building combines architectural elegance, a variety of casual and fine-dining restaurants, shops, tourist information, exhibition spaces and much more. No admission charges and no queues!!!

All this plus 554 trains a day!!!

Address: 42nd St & Park Ave.
Directions: Pretty much unmissable on East 42nd
