Grand Central Terminal, a Movie Star in New York City

The Grand Central Terminal witnessed so many romantic reunions of lovers, grieving  passengers who were not coming and emotional scenes in countless movies. Friends with Benefits(2011), Carlito’s Way (1993), Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) and Old Dogs (2009) are just a few examples of the movies Grand Central Terminal was in.

Main Concourse is the main hall of the terminal with a very high ceiling and a big clock right  in the middle of it. You will be under the charm of this magnificent hall the moment you step inside. Get ready to see a crazy flow of people with those going to the platforms, buying tickets and taking pictures. According to a survey made by Travel Leisure magazine in 2012, Grand Central Terminal is the 6th most visited touristic place in the world. It shouldn’t have been a surprise since on average the terminal welcomes 21,600,000 visitors per year.

There is a shopping area and a food court on the lower level of the terminal. My favourite shop is PIQ where you can find designer toys such as Sonny Angels and Kid Robot.

The Grand Central Terminal is open between 5:30 am and 2 pm
