Grand Central Terminal
Metro-North commuters come into the city each day via this Beaux-Arts gem, but it’s a worthwhile stop for anyone curious about the city’s rich history. Among the many highlights are the iconic constellation mural above the Grand Concourse, and the Oyster Bar, which we love for its famous interiors, built in 1913 under the arches of the train station. In addition, we’re always fans of a drink at the Campbell Apartment, an authentic, dimly-lit, old-fashioned bar nestled in the building, where you have to dress up for admission. And, if you need a quick snack, the Dining Concourse houses many NYC highlights like Junior’s, Shake Shack, and an outpost of Murray’s Cheese.
