Grand Central Terminal


Restored back to its 1913 splendor, Grand Central Terminal has become a midtown New York destination with five restaurants and cocktail lounges, 20 casual international eateries in the lower level Dining Concourse, gourmet foods from the Grand Central Market and the 50 unique specialty shops throughout the concourses, all in to addition to transportation.

Grand Central has also transformed itself into a venue for ongoing public events. Throughout the year, Vanderbilt Hall, the Terminal's 12,000 square foot former Main Waiting Room, is the site for ongoing promotions and entertainment ranging from tennis exhibits to the annual Holiday Fair.

Grand Central has become an international example of a successful urban project that gave new life to an historic building which otherwise would have been discarded and destroyed.

A July 2007 episode of the video web site Rocketboom provides a graceful picture of the bustle of the main concourse.
