Why locals love it
A historical landmark, Grand Central Terminal is one of the busiest train stations in the country. Besides serving as a major transportation hub, it is a great meeting spot for locals due to its central (ha!) location and proximity to popular shops.
Why you should visit it
Snap some photos of the spectacular astronomical ceiling, or take advantage of the many shops and dining options. Bring a friend and test out the acoustics of the Whisper Gallery (outside the Oyster Bar): each of you stands diagonally across from one another in each corner & whispers something into the wall. You should be able to hear one another!
