  Union Station Grand Hall
by CdnJane

Union Station is, of course, the main rail station for Toronto. Located on Front Street between Bay St and York St, across from The Royal York hotel, and connected by tunnels to the Air Canada Centre to the south, and to the Royal York Hotel and then The P.A.T.H - the underground route of tunnels through the business section of downtown Toronto.
The Grand Hall - or the main, ground level, area of the Departures and Ticket sales, car rentals, and information - has beautiful architectural elements if you look up, but the main features are the 2 huge windows the dominate either end of the hall. They have appeared in a number of American films and tv shows portraying New Yorks Grand Central Station - most remarkably in the movie, SilverStreak, where the train comes smashing through the big window.
Union Station is also the connection to the TTC subway system, "GO" trains & buses, and the LRT (Light Rapid Transit) system down to Queen's Quay.
