Grand Central Terminal is one of New York City’s most famous landmarks. Located on 42nd street at Park Avenue, it is often referred to as Grand Central Station, or simply called Grand Central for short. Grand Central is the world’s largest railway station at 76-acres. It is also America’s busiest, as 500,000 commuters and subway riders use this terminal daily. In the main hall of Grand Terminal you will find the famous barrel-vaulted ceiling which depicts the winter sky displaying 2500 stars as well as a zodiac sign on a blue ceiling. There is also a 4-faced clock in the center of the terminal that is worth over $10 million, with all of the clock faces made from opal. The station’s ceiling was painted backwards by mistake! At Grand Central Terminal the staircase located on the west side of the terminal is the original structure, while the east side’s is new. The flooring is made of pink marble. It is interesting to note that the number 6 on the outside terminal clock is actually a window.
