Join this fabulous Grand Central Terminal Tour! This 1 hour self guided audio tour takes you across the many historic points of Grand Central Terminal. Included is the famous Whispering Gallery, the famous astronomic ceiling, the Biltmore room, the iconic information clock, and many other points of interest.
Grand Central terminal is one of the most famous stations in the world and a must see for anyone visiting New York! Replacing two previous railroad stations, the current landmark Grand Central Terminal opened in 1913. The construction of the terminal spurred an entire real estate boom. It lead to creations of many famous hotels and landmarks such as the Chrysler Building – directly across the street.
After an attempt to tear down the terminal, Jacqueline Kennedy rallied to its defence in 1968, saving the terminal from an untimely death that the Pennsylvania Station experienced. The extensive restoration includes many new shopping options as well as a fully stocked food court in the lower level.
Especially worth seeing is the Main Concourse Ceiling. It is massive and cathedral-like and features 12 constellations painted in gold leaf, as well as 2500 stars. Other important parts of the terminal are the famous Information Booth Clock and the whispering gallery. The Great Central Market features 13 local vendors selling, treats, gourmet ingredients, asnd much more.
