Built in 1913, Grand Central Terminal is a living, moving, bustling monument to the romance of train travel. Millions of people move though its halls and under its cavernous domes each week, journeying underneath the night sky of the main hall's cathedral ceiling which has a periodic laser show pointing out the planets, galaxies, and constellations.

Underneath the main concourse there are shops, cafes and restaurants, and even there the station has its own charm with less of the large chain stores and more unique boutiques and small franchises. It’s big enough so that guided tours are offered…and with its 44 platforms and 67 tracks it’s the world’s largest train station.

If you’re coming here there’s a fair chance you’ll be meeting someone under the Tiffany glass clock near the Information Booths, which has to be one of the world’s most famous meeting places.
