About Grand Central:
It's the place to meet on your way to and through New York City, but there's more to Grand Central than train tracks. (It's not called "Grand" for nothing.)
The terminal, a thruway for millions of commuters every week, offers many a chance to conjure up to romance of train travel. Built in 1913 and recently revitalized with shops and restaurants, Grand Central holds many secrets that you only need to look closely to see.
Atop the station is Campbell Apartment, '30s tycoon John W. Campbell's hideaway office and a luxurious escape from the bustle below. For great dining views, check out Michael Jordan's Steak House on the west side of the concourse and Metrazur on the east.
Below the tracks are levels of shopping and dining-from clothiers to florists to souvenir shops. And often in Vanderbilt Hall are visiting art exhibits and other events.
And don't forget to look up in the main concourse. The illustrated blue-green cathedral ceiling offers a different view of the nighttime sky, with constellations and other heavenly bodies-sometimes highlighted with a periodic zodiac laser show you may be lucky enough to catch.
