Earlier this year, New York magazine gathered a panel of architectural, preservation, history and urban-planning experts to decide which of the thousands of buildings and skyscrapers should be considered the city’s best.  The winner was Grand Central Terminal, the beaux-arts masterpiece in the heart of New York. Yet many visitors overlook this 1913 gem when planning a New York itinerary.  With secret stairways and entrances, a storied list of world-leader visits, World War I intrigue buried ten stories deep, and appearances in dozens of iconic movies, Grand Central Terminal has 100 years of fascinating history inside. Restored in the mid-1990s after years of neglect and a mid-20th Century push for demolition that was stopped in large part by former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Grand Central Terminal boasts a wide array of distinctive shops, restaurants, lounges and casual dining options. Visitors from around the world will enjoy the building’s restored ceiling, its near-daily special events (most notably its acclaimed annual Holiday Fair during the Christmas season), and a new audio tour that spills the secrets of New York’s best building.

As a commuter to the city, I often take the Metro North, arriving in Grand Central Terminal and so many times I am reminded of how fortunate I am to have such a beautiful building be my base for transportation. From impromptu dance videos, to watching Russel Brand film “Get him to the Greek’, I have seen my fair share of excitement at GCT. The holidays, however, will always hold the most magic as far as I’m concerned. The beauty of New York during the holidays surpasses any other time of year, and Grand Central is one of the most iconic settings for reuniting with loved ones or simply taking a holiday stroll.
