Grand Central Terminal, New York City
Grand Central Station, officially named Grand Central Terminal, is one big reason that public transportation in New York City isn’t just a way from points A to B, it is part of the experience. Grand Central has been called one of the most magnificent public places in our country, because of its pure size (the biggest rail station in the world by number of platforms), its enormous aesthetic appeal, and the variety of attractions found here. Grand Central Station New York, located near many New York City hotels at 42nd Street and Park Avenue in Midtown Manhattan, is a must-experience for anyone interested in public transportation, architecture, and sculpted art. Transportation, the neo-classical sculpture by Jules-Alexis Coutan found at Grand Central Station, is a breathtaking work that explores the idea of transit using characters of mythology.
