Grand central terminal
Experience New York City’s crown jewel
Be transported by the iconic beauty and lasting legacy of Grand Central Terminal. This historic world-famous landmark in Midtown Manhattan is not simply a transportation hub—it’s also a shopping, dining, and cultural destination with 60 shops, 35 places to eat, and a full calendar of events all under one magnificent roof.
Opened to the public in February 1913, Grand Central Terminal is a story of great engineering, survival, and rebirth. In 1978, architect Philip Johnson and First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis campaigned to secure landmark status for the Terminal, ensuring the building would serve New Yorkers for generations to come.
Grand Central Terminal is one of the country’s great architectural achievements and New York City’s unofficial meeting place with thousands of people choosing to “meet me at the clock” – rendezvousing with friends and loved ones each day at the opal-faced Main Concourse Information Booth Clock.
Hailed as a temple to the everyday commuter, this cathedral-like building was constructed to honor you, its visitors.
“Grand Central Terminal stands as a universal symbol between New York City’s past and present.”
