Grand Central Station
Grand Central Station is one of the two major railway stations serving Manhattan, New York City, the other being New York Pennsylvania Station. Situated astride Park Avenue South at 42nd Street, Grand Central Station takes up several city blocks, and connects Metro North to the MTA Subway System. The MetLife Building emerges from behind the Station's facade. Decorated in Neoclassical fashion, the station resembles a Roman municipal structure, complete with frieze and dedication to the public good.
