You’ll know that you’re at Grand Central Station, when you feel your jaw drop as you walk through the door. When the word ‘Grand’ is attached to the name of a place, you wouldn’t expect any less of it. It was pretty busy when we were there, though I was expecting a crazier crowd!
There’s even an Apple Store sharing the same space! It simply makes our Apple Stores back home in Sydney seem a bit ordinary. The Apple Store is also a great spot to people watch from. You could easily tell who the tourists were, other than the obvious with a camera/iphone in hand and snapping away… their heads would be gazing in every direction other than forward.
We didn’t wander around to every corner of the station unfortunately – like what there is to offer in the Food Hall! We made sure to check out the holiday markets in the adjacent hall though. These markets sold more handmade, crafty goods – mostly jewellery and with a bigger price tag than the outdoor markets. A reasonably smaller market that spans across 3 aisles from memory, but at least you won’t be freezing while you stroll through!
Even without the holiday markets, you could easily spend over 30mins to an hour in Grand Central just people watching from above and admiring the architecture. I’ve yet to come across a train station more grand than this!
Spotted the Chrysler building the moment we stepped out!
