NYC Subway System - James Aiken

Welcome To Grand Central

A winged god and clock welcome you to Grand Central Terminal in New York City with a grand gesture.

Grand Central Terminal stands as one of America's greatest transportation hubs, and one of New York City's most iconic buildings. It is both a national institution and an international example of giving new life to a historic building rather than demolition and reconstruction. Over the course of a colorful and tumultuous 100-year history, Grand Central has gone from being simply the beginning and terminating point of long-distance rail travel, to being the iconic home of Metro-North Railroad and a destination for commuters, tourists and residents. Grand Central boasts restaurants, cocktail lounges, a gourmet market, and numerous specialty shops.
