Grand Central Terminal

Grand Central Terminal has often been called "the heart of nyc". It officially opened 12:01am Sunday Feb. 2, 1913 and more than 150,000 visited that opening day. It has had it's ups and downs since opening but remains one of the most famous of the NYC landmarks. The many times I have visited, I had not taken photos. It is also somewhat dark inside so photos can be tricky but I had some come out pretty nicely. Shall we enter......

how beautiful is this???
the ceiling is so gorgeous 
you have to be careful not to get run over..people are actually trying to get a train or subway here!!
that famous clock ......
track 28 is this way......
there are many places to dine here as well...I finally bought this bread at Zaro's after taking photos of it for quite a while...verdict? delish and only $4.95 would make a great french toast
Junior's is known for the cheesecake but the carrot cake is to die for!!
Ciao Bella gelato is a nice cooling treat, especially in the summer 
Fried Oysters at the Grand Central Oyster bar....if you like oysters, this is the place to be!!

Zaro's has birthday cake if it is your special day
Let's not forget Magnolia Bakery's Grand Central Cuppie....with edible gold dust

I never had a chance to really visit GCT. Our train boarded at Madison Square Garden, and that station is for sure not as pretty!

Grand Central Terminal really is grand - so much better than that awful Penn Station. Plus the food shops here are wonderful.
