Grand Central Terminal:
A fine Beaux Arts building that's also a subway and bus transportation hub. Stand in the middle near the Information booth in the morning and feel the buzz of the city as people pass by you. Look up at the ceiling and see a mirror image of the zodiac constellations. Visit the casual dining (lower level) and fine dining (such as Michael Jordan's Steakhouse) establishments, specialty stores, and the fresh food marketplace. The 42nd St facade shows statues of Cornelius Vanderbuilt (father of the railroad), Mercury, Hercules, and Minerva.
